Northern Beaches Council is allocating $240,000 to its Community, Arts & Culture Grants Program for the year 2019/20 with a special focus on advancing “social inclusion”.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said Council is keen to foster welcoming villages and neighbourhood centres that are vibrant, accessible and support the health and wellbeing of our community.

Grants of between $2,000 and $10,000 are available to eligible groups and organisations which undertake projects or activities that bring direct benefit to the locals and the community. 

“The 2019 - 2020 Community, Arts & Culture Grants Program is directed at groups that share Council’s vision of ‘a safe, inclusive and connected community that lives in balance with our extraordinary coastal and bushland environment’,” he said.

The grants will be available for projects that can be implemented between July 2019 and 30 June 2020.

To qualify, grant applicants must be incorporated not-for-profit organisations operating within the Northern Beaches local government area.

However, individuals and unincorporated small groups may qualify for a grant so long as they are sponsored to undertake their project by an eligible not-for-profit organisation.

Industry peak bodies and political parties are not eligible for the grants, and there is a specific separate grant program for events.

“We receive so many very deserving applications so eligible groups and organisations who want to apply are strongly urged to attend one of four information sessions on the grants program being held.” Mayor Michael Regan said.

They will be held on:

  • Monday 18 March,
    6:30 – 8pm at North Narrabeen Community & Tennis Centre
     
  • Wednesday 20 March,
    10am - 12pm at Mona Vale Memorial Hall
     
  • Tuesday 2 April,
    10am – 12pm at Dee Why Council Chambers
     
  • Thursday 4 April,
    6 – 8pm at Dee Why Council Chambers

…and one of two general grant writing seminars on:

  • Monday 25 March,
    6:30 – 8pm at North Narrabeen Community & Tennis Centre
     
  • Tuesday 26 March,
    10am – 12pm at Dee Why Council Chambers

The Community, Arts & Culture Grants funding round will open for applications from 9am Monday 18 March and will close at 3pm, Tuesday 30 April 2019.

“The objective of the Community, Arts & Culture Grants is to support local groups and organisations that work to create a stronger and more connected Northern Beaches community, with an explicit focus on addressing the causes of inequality and disadvantage,” said Mayor Regan.

“A small subsidy can make a real difference to community-based organisations wanting to present projects or activities.”
