At the City of PAE we are committed to making our city a place where people love to be, so we offer the PAE Places Grants to help develop community spaces.
PAE Places Grants can be used to improve how we feel and use our public spaces and how we can enhance the way they look and work, and also how we celebrate our heritage.
Please read the Grant Guidelines carefully before applying. Many documents on this site are displayed as PDF files. If you have problems accessing, reading or understanding these documents please contact us on 8405 6972.
