Community Events Grants

Applications for the Community Events grants open Friday 22 November 2019. The closing date is Friday 31 January 2020 at 5pm.

The Community Events grants aim to establish and encourage new events to the City of Parramatta which:

  • are low cost or free to the public
  • are a new offering to the city that compliments the existing events calendar
  • encourages new visitors to the city

The grant program has a strong focus on delivering social, community, recreational and cultural benefits to Parramatta’s community.

Applicants are eligible to receive grant funding to cover up to 20% of the total event budget up to the amount of $10,000 annually.

The total pool amount available in the City of Parramatta Events Grants is $70,000 per financial year.

Events must align with the City of Parramatta 'Vision and Primary Priorities' and must be delivered wholly or primarily within the Parramatta local government area which principally benefits residents.

The program supports not for profit organisations, community groups, professional groups, and in some cases individuals who are auspiced by an organisation.

The City of Parramatta supports a range of events delivered across the local government area, including Parramatta CBD, neighbourhoods and suburbs.
