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.

This morning I addressed the UrbanGrowth NSW Bays Precinct Summit on city leadership and place making. We have a real opportunity to revitalise the area (which includes Rozelle Bay, Blackwattle Bay and the Fish Markets) but public benefit must be put first.

Have you recycled at one of our reverse vending machines? The two machines – at Circular Quay and Haymarket – have collected over 40,000 bottles since July. That's 40,000 containers that can now be recycled, turning rubbish into a resource and keeping our streets and waterways clean and beautiful.
