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.

Sydney is a fast-paced city, but safety should always be our first priority. It’s not worth risking your life or someone else’s to get to your destination a few seconds faster. This week the City launched a new road safety campaign to highlight the number of accidents occurring in the city’s most dangerous areas -- the more we’re all aware of our most dangerous traffic areas, the more we can be mindful and exercise caution.

A week after getting the facts wrong on #WestConnex, the Daily Telegraph has acknowledged their mistake. This is important, given the State Government is arguing the $15b roadway is necessary to connect people with work. Driving will always be a part of how our city operates, but WestConnex is not the transport infrastructure Sydney desperately needs.
