Place grants


Applications open: Wednesday 29 September

Total funding value: $80,000

Maximum application value: $15,000

Place grants aim to support community-led initiatives that:

  • make a positive contribution to the physical character, amenity or activation of a neighbourhood 
  • build the capacity and capability of a town team or place-based group.

Initiatives should foster collaboration and active participation of local people (residents, workers, business owners and/or community groups etc.) to address local priorities and improve local neighbourhoods. 

Eligibility criteria may apply, so please speak with your local Place Leader for advice on planning initiatives and preparing applications.
