Funding criteria for Ardlussa


Consideration will be given to all funding requests.

The board will give preference to applications that directly benefit the wider community and align with the outcomes of the Ardlussa Community Board plan.

Funding requests must be for not for profit purposes. 

There is no cap on the amount applicants can request. Co funding is preferable and will be assessed on a case by case basis.

Two quotes are preferable for capital works, but if it is not possible to get more than one quote and explanation why will be sufficient.

Applicants will be invited to speak to the board about their funding request and project.

Groups do not have to be a legal entity to apply. Individuals will be considered on a case by case basis.


Ardlussa is a community that cares and looks after each other, is alive with enthusiasm, is a good environment to bring up families and is respectful of its environment.

Community outcomes

  • a connected, inclusive and vibrant Ardlussa community
  • a community that attracts people, businesses and visitors 
  • a community where council fosters leadership, partnerships and community engagement.
