Night Time Economy Diversification Grants Scheme
The Night Time Economy Diversification Grant Scheme aims to support the growth of the City’s night time economy and to diversify the City’s current night time offering to encompass more than the traditional industries of food and beverage service and retailing, as well as entertainment. Council wants to incentivise businesses and community groups to provide unique night-time experiences.
There are five categories of grants that make up the Night Time Economy Diversification Grants Scheme. In 2019/2020, each category has an available funding pool of $10,000.
These grants include:
|Grant Category||Types of projects that could be funded|
|Grant 1 - Live music||
|Grant 2 - Small and pop-up bars||
|Grant 3 - Arts, culture and performance||
|Grant 4 - Retail and services||
|Grant 5 - Local centres||
Applications for 2019/2020 have closed. An announcement on the 2020/2021 Grant Round will be made shortly.
