Community Grants Bring Local Ideas to Life
Part of Newcastle City Council's 2030 plan for the city, round two of the Make Your Place community grant program is now open. Grants of up to $2000 are available to kick start community projects that will improve local parks and streets to help make Newcastle a vibrant place to be.
Place Making Facilitator Susan Denholm says the program will help to create great places and neighbourhoods which improve the health, happiness and wellbeing of the community.
"These types of projects encourage residents to get to know their neighbours and get hands-on to deliver projects that directly benefit their local area."
The Make Your Place community grant program provides grants of up to $2000 for projects that benefit existing users of the place with potential to increase community use in a positive way, show evidence of collaboration and/or partnerships and involve community members in doing the project.
