Our objectives

  • Encourage community-based organisations to develop and run sustainable events which meet and enhance community activities in the Hornsby Local Government Area, and preference be given to events that involve local residents.
  • Promote the active participation of local residents in community initiatives, and the development of their capacity, skills, knowledge and opportunities.
  • Provide assistance to the community to develop initiatives and services, which are consistent with Council objectives and programs, but not directly operated by Council.

Funding is available for not-for-profit organisations located within Hornsby Shire LGA. $17,638 will be available through a Place Activation Grant funding pool.

Cash funding, in kind support and sponsorship is available up to a total value of $3,000 per applicant organisation. These grants are designed to be one-off only.
