When do applications open?

Applications are open from Monday 24 June 2019 until midnight, Sunday 21 July 2019.

Does my organisation need an Australian Business Number (ABN)?


Does my organisation need to be registered as a deductible gift recipient (DGR)?


Does my organisation need to be located in the Latrobe Valley?

Applicants should be located in the Latrobe Valley, but will be considered from across the Gippsland region if the funded program will be of benefit to those living in the Latrobe Valley.

Does my application need to relate to funding for a local project?

Yes.  The Loy Yang B Community Partnership Program focuses on community projects taking place in Gippsland and the Latrobe Valley and only those projects that benefit our local community will be considered.

How much funding can I apply for?

Loy Yang B secured its major community partners for a three year term in 2018/19, which means much of the annual $260,000 budget has been allocated. This year's program focuses on smaller grants of up to $5000 from an available budget of $30,000. Applicants can apply for funding of up to $5000 but must be able to demonstrate the capacity to contribute to the funding of the project/activity and the capacity to complete the project/activity within a 12 month timeframe. 

I didn't submit my application on time, can I still apply for funding after 21 July 2019?

No. If you did not submit your application on time you will need to make your submission in the 2020/21 round of community partnership funding which is scheduled to open in June 2020.

Can I apply for funding from Loy Yang B at any time?

No. Loy Yang B has moved to a once a year funding application process. Invitations for applications will be made once a year only, so please plan ahead.
