Place-Based Initiatives (Annual) Grants

Place-Based Initiatives (Annual)

The Place-Based Initiatives (Annual) funding stream is for small-medium scale place-based activities (attracting audiences of between 500 and 5,000) that creatively activate public spaces, business precincts and local neighbourhoods.

Grants of up to $20,000 are available to not-for-profit organisations, incorporated community groups, or by applying through an auspice arrangement. The round opens annually, usually in May/June of each year.

Applications are assessed by Council’s independent Festivals and Visitation Advisory Panel and recommendations are made to Council for endorsement, with outcomes usually notified in August or September.

This grant stream closed at 4pm, Monday 3 June 2024. Funding outcomes will be notified following the 20 August Council Meeting. 

The next Place-Based Initiatives (Annual) grant stream is currently scheduled to re-open in May/June 2025.
