Festivals Australia funds high-quality arts projects that invite community participation and audience engagement. Projects can include but are not limited to a parade, performance, workshop, installation or exhibition.


Local Sports Grants – 7 October. Funding varies.

The Local Sport Grant Program (LSGP) aims to increase regular and on-going participation opportunities in sport in NSW. There are four project types within the Program:

1. Sport Development
2.    Sport Event
3.    Sport Access
4.    Sport Facility

Applicants will be required to identify the type of project for which they are applying as different information is required for each project type. An organisation may apply for more than one project but must register separate projects for different project types.



Disaster recovery grants of up to $75,000 are now available to primary producers in LGAs affected by the NSW bushfires that have occurred from 31 August 2019.

Primary producers are now able to access the Special Disaster Grant – Bushfire of up to $75,000. See the Special Disaster Grant – Bushfires for more information.  Grants close 15 December 2020.

Small Business and not-for-profit organisations can now access the Small Business Disaster Grant of up to $50,000. Please see theService NSW website for further information. I would suggest calling and ask to speak to the concierge who can assist with making the application.
