  • Event Seed Funding (incorporating Emerge Festival Grants)
  • The Concourse Performing Arts Subsidy

Grants of up to $4000 are available, depending on the Grant category.

Applications for all other Grant categories open at the end of March and close on Friday 30 May, 2016. 

“Willoughby Council’s Community Grants program is a great opportunity for Council to support and assist programs, performances and artworks that in turn benefit our local community,” said Willoughby Mayor, Gail Giles-Gidney.
