Community Events Grants

The Community Events Grant Program aims to support moderate-sized events, which bring economic benefits to the City, enrich the community, celebrate common interests and provide opportunities for local participation.
Applications for the February round will be accepted between 1 February to 2 March 2020.

The program offers up to $20,000 for events in 2020 and multi-year funding is an option..
