We provide a number of funding opportunities to support initiatives that contribute to the social, cultural, environmental, and economic life of the city.
Some of our grants and sponsorship opportunities have been updated to make it simpler to apply, and fairer to everyone in the community. They also align with our plan for the future, Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan.
Please note that all funding for the 2021 Community Grant Funding Program has been issued. The next round of funding will be in May 2022.
Following the allocation of funding, if any stream has unexpended funds, the stream may reopen for further funding opportunities.
The current exception to this process is:
- Sponsorship Program - Major Events Development Sponsorship. An EOI process which remains open throughout the year until funding is fully expended.
