Facility Hire Grants

Applications for facility hire grants

Grants to use Council facilities for meetings, functions, and events are available for community groups and organisations. The activities must benefit the Glen Eira community and meet the aims of the Community Grants Program.

There are two ways to seek a grant for use of a Council facility:

  1. As part of the annual Community Grants application process. Hire of facilities for recurring activities over the year must be made as part of an annual community grant.
  2. Throughout the year for occasional use, prior to the event taking place.

Facilities available for hire include: Town Hall rooms, community rooms at Carnegie library and Community Centre, Council owned public halls, social rooms recreation facilities and parks.

Prior to completing an application for a Facility Hire Grant, you must:

  • nominate the facility and a date for your activities;
  • make a booking with the facility booking officer; and
  • obtain the cost.

Payment of Facility Hire Grants is made by internal transfer. Organisations do not receive the funds.  Facility Hire grants do not cover bond payments that may be required by some Council venues at the time of booking.

How do I apply for occasional use?

Facility hire only grant applications support once off or occasional use of a Glen Eira City Council facility.
