  • Sport and Recreation; and
  • Events sponsorship.

Community Grants and Event Sponsorship Program 2017-18

This round was the City of Canterbury Bankstown's inaugural Community Grants and Event Sponsorship Program, which is the amalgamation of the former Canterbury Financial Assistance Program and the former Bankstown Community Grants and Events Sponsorship Program.

We received 185 grant applications from a diverse range of groups, with requests totalling more than $1.2million, more than double what we are able to allocate to the Program.  Thank you to all groups which applied.

Congratulations to the 79 organisations that have received a share in more than $501,000, to run 120 projects.

Community Grants and Event Sponsorship Program 2018-19

The next round of grants is expected to open mid-2018.
