THE Community Events and Place Activation Grant Program supports the community to deliver events and activities that activate spaces and places around town centres, foreshores, lakes and open spaces for families and the wider community, including visitors to the region.


The Community Development Grant Program supports community organisations to implement activities that provide community outcomes and enhance the quality of life of residents of the Central Coast as well as strengthening their ability to deliver projects and services that respond to the needs of the community.


Together the programs have a total budget of $600,000 and are funded through existing and approved 22/23 Operational Plan budgets.


Council Administrator, Rik Hart said funding is important to reconnect our community and support our local organisations.


“I’m pleased this funding will support organisations to deliver a range of exciting, meaningful programs and activities that engage our local community and encourage visitation to our region”.
