Thank you for your applications, which are being processed and assessed in the next few months. We will let you know the outcome of your application in August.

The City of Sydney sponsors a wide variety of projects and initiatives. Priority is given to activities that help support Sustainable Sydney 2030.

The cultural grants and sponsorship program provides funding opportunities over $5,000 for cultural organisations and organisations undertaking cultural activities within or that will benefit the local area.

The City takes a broad view of cultural activity, including performing and visual arts and crafts, literature, film, digital arts, design, architecture, history and heritage, food and wine, and their expression through public debate, festivals, exhibitions, creative space development, performances, competitions and public celebrations of importance to individual communities and/or greater Sydney.

Applications for this program are invited once a year.

How to apply

All applications are assessed against the grant criteria and in accordance with the City's grants and sponsorships policy, available for download below.

Before you get started get in touch with us to make sure your project is eligible. If you are seeking a grant of more than $20,000 it is recommended you meet with City staff to discuss your application before it is submitted.

The grants team are very happy to provide advice and support to all grants applicants but we cannot proof read draft applications.
