We want to provide support for local organisations and community groups, and help property owners conserve our heritage, through many exciting grants and funding opportunities.

If you or your organisation has a project that deserves to be funded, see if we can find a grant with your name on it. See below for details. 

NSW Government COVID-19 Support Grant

The Northern Beaches Support Grant is a NSW Government grant and will be administered by Service NSW.  We do not have a date for when applications open but further information is available on their website.  As soon as Service NSW open the grant, Council will put out a special Business EDM and also email directly businesses who have enquired.  Please register here to receive Council’s business updates or request an appointment with a Business Liaison Officer if you wish to discuss support for your business.

Grant writing webinar
