Business grant programs

Environmental grant programs

Our environmental grant programs support the City’s work towards the environmental performance targets included in our community strategic plan Sustainable Sydney 2030.

Cultural grant programs

Our focus on cultivating creativity in the city informs funding priorities for projects and initiatives that align with the key strategies outlined in the cultural policy and action plan and the live music and performance action plan.

Community grant programs

We fund projects that help increase equality in our area, develop resilient and adaptive communities and support strong governance and civic engagement for sustainability.
