Community Events

Celebrations, sports, exhibitions - get involved in your community.
From regional centres to suburban neighbourhoods and rural towns, the Victorian Government is supporting individual communities to make the most of the Games. Each council in Victoria will have access to funding for their community to “Get Involved” in the Games through celebrations, sport, exhibitions and community infrastructure projects.

Local Councils have been asked to coordinate Games-related activities in their municipality, working in partnership with community groups to develop ideas, plan and complete projects.

Launched in September 2004, Getting Involved grant submission will close on 16 December 2004.

The program is also a chance for your school to engage with your local Council, forming partnerships on many Games-related activities and events. Contact your local Council to find out how your community can celebrate the Games.

Information on the Getting Involved Grants Program can be found at www.dvc.vic.gov.au/commonwealth_games.
