Council's Annual Community Grants Now Open for Applications

Council’s Annual Community Grants Program, which provides opportunities for local non-profit community based organisations and groups to apply for funding to assist with projects that meet community needs and benefit residents in the community, is now open.

The program’s categories include Community Development, Cultural and Local Studies and Leisure and Recreation.

Projects across the Annual Community Grants categories might include educational, sports, arts, training, service provision or community projects, through to assistance with small scale equipment and activities that are available to community members.

Council’s Coordinator Recreation and Community Planning Emily Livens says, 'This program offers grants of up to $5,000 in matched funding to assist with projects in the Maitland LGA that foster partnerships, meet community needs and benefit the wider community.‘

'Initiatives including the inaugural Maitland Indie Festival, a street party and carols, and Hunter Telugu Badi’s community day received matched funding through this program in 2019/20, so I’m looking forward to receiving a variety of applications for consideration for 2020/21 funding.’

The program will give applicants the opportunity to develop initiatives which address an unmet need or seek funding for an innovative idea which will make a positive difference to the Maitland community.

Applications are now open until 31 August 2020. For more information or to complete an application visit maitland.nsw.gov.au/annual-community-grants
