Matched Funding for Community Initiatives

Do you have an idea for a project that would improve your neighbourhood? If you have a group of willing participants and a great idea to improve, enhance or inspire your local village, we may be able to help you make your idea a reality.

The City of Sydney has a matching grants program and accepts submissions for community based projects all year round.

The grants program offers matching funds of up to $10,000 to support community initiatives.

Eight community initiated projects that will improve, enhance and celebrate the City’s villages were recently awarded Matching Grants worth $38,990 in total.

Ranging from bicycle workshops and swap events to jewellery workshops for children, all the projects are locally based and directly contributing to the cultural, social, environmental or economic life of the City.

If you have an idea – or you are thinking of applying for a Matching Grant, I encourage you to contact our staff before you apply for more information.

The "Countdown to Paris" timer on stage for our #SydCityTalk gives a sense of the urgency and timeliness of tonight's discussion. Momentum is building toward December's climate summit but there is still a significant gap between stated targets and the reductions we need to avoid the worst effects of climate change. We can and must do more. Use the #SydCityTalk hashtag on Twitter to follow tonight's discussion and ask questions of our panel: Former EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard; Shadow Minister for the Environment Mark Butler; Australian Greens Deputy Leader Larissa Waters; and Former Liberal Party Leader John Hewson.

A great day for Sydney with the fantastic Barangaroo Reserve open to the public. Great to see so many people out enjoying the beautiful parklands -- some where more active than others!
