The West Gate Neighbourhood Fund is a Victorian Government initiative designed to bring people together and further improve Melbourne’s inner west while the West Gate Tunnel Project is under construction.

West Gate Neighbourhood Fund – Partnerships will provide funding for larger projects over $100,000. Partnerships will assist organisations to implement projects such as community infrastructure, capital equipment and programs that build community leadership and participation.

Eligible parties include councils and incorporated not-for-profit groups that are based, or operate, within the local government areas of Maribyrnong City Council and Hobsons Bay City Council.

A wide range of projects are eligible including those that celebrate heritage, history or diversity, focus on arts and culture, emphasise learning and development, or enable greater participation of community members.

Both financial and in-kind contributions will be considered favourably when applying for a partnership.

The fund is managed by the West Gate Tunnel Project of the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority.
