Central Coast Council gives the community the opportunity to apply for funding to support events, programs and initiatives. Each financial year funding is available for community projects via the Community Grants and Sponsorship Program. See the links below to view more information on each program and submit an application form.
The Sponsorship program will be opening later in 2020 on a date to be advised on this webpage and published via Council’s print and electronic media.
All your grants, one searchable platform. Grantfinder
The Central Coast Council Grantfinder portal is a comprehensive list of all grant and funding opportunities available for Central Coast businesses, community groups, not-for-profits and individuals.
The ClubGRANTS scheme in the Central Coast's Local Government Area is funded by local registered clubs to provide community support through a Local Committee.
Due to the current COVID -19 pandemic and the government requirement to close all clubs, the Central Coast Local Committee has cancelled the 2020 ClubGRANTS round.
Council Community Grants Information Sessions (Online)
Council is running free information sessions for community members to be guided on the various Council Community Grant programs with information on guidelines, eligibility, application process and timeframes, dates to be confirmed.
