Community Grants





COVID-19 Community Response Grants

Northern Beaches Council has established an emergency grant program for community groups to help them support those affected by the impact of COVID -19 (coronavirus) on the Northern Beaches.

The grant allows eligible community organisations and charities to continue to deliver, expand and introduce new programs, initiatives and services to the Northern Beaches community.

This short-term grant program is intended to fill the gap for community groups requiring support, alongside federal and state government initiatives.

Applying for the COVID-19 Community Response Grants does not make organisations ineligible for Council’s Annual Grants Program, which are still in operation in a modified form.

Proposals must meet at least one of the following criteria:
•Assist organisations serving vulnerable populations with basic needs (including food supplies, financial hardship, accommodation and social isolation etc.) where they have seen an increase in demand due to COVID-19
•Expand current service delivery or establish new services to support community members impacted by COVID-19, particularly around increased levels of unemployment
•Assist organisations experiencing volunteer gaps due to quarantines, loss of volunteers and social distancing
•Projects that address increased homelessness issues, particularly rough sleepers
•Projects that address increased social isolation
•Projects that address the mental health impacts of COVID-19.

Closes 1 December 2020 (or until funds are expended).

Applications will be reviewed and assessed on a regular basis commencing Friday 5 June. Organisations will be notified as soon as possible as to the outcome of their application.

$5,000 - $15,000 (excl. GST) is available per organisation.
