Small Change Grants Program for Young People

Byron Shire Council are again running the Small Change grants program for youth, where young people can apply for up to $1000 towards a project that meets the funding criteria.


Council recognises and values the contribution that young people bring to the Byron Shire community with their energy, ideas, perspectives and liveliness. The aim of the grants program is to supports young people to participate in community life: having a voice, joining in and gaining experience in leadership roles.

Young people aged between 15 and 25 are invited to apply for a small grant to help fund a project that will benefit young people in Byron Shire. Young people need to be auspiced by an organisation, must live in the Byron Shire and must deliver the project in Byron Shire.
