The Community Grants and Event Sponsorship Program provides financial support to assist local community based organisations to develop and implement initiatives that enhance individual and/or community well-being in the Canterbury Bankstown Local Government Area.
Grants are issued under five categories: Community, Youth, Arts/Cultural, Sport and Recreation and Events Sponsorship
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 those who applied.
CONGRATULATIONS to the 79 organisations that will receive a share in over $501,000 to run 120 projects through the Program.
The next grant round 2018-2019, is expected to open mid-2018.
