My Place Grants
My Place Grants are a Place Activation funding program announced as part of Maitland City Council's COVID-19 Response and Recovery initiatives.
The program will support celebrations in suburbs across our city that are planned and delivered by the community for the community. Funding of up $20,000 per project will be available to individuals working together and/or local non-profit community based groups.
The program encourages community collaboration to deliver celebrations that reconnect communities, build networks and create a safe, inclusive environment for residents to come together once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, in suburbs across our City.
The projects should reflect the unique character of your suburb, be free and accessible to all members of the community.
The ideas posted by the community will be used to spark inspiration for public submissions in the Expression of interest (EOI) phase. Council's Place Activation team will consult with community members who have submitted an EOI to ensure the project is feasible and deliverable. Applicants with EOI concepts that meet the project guidelines will be invited to submit a formal application. The concepts submitted by the community will be put to the public to vote to select the successful projects. Projects will be delivered, pending the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, on a rolling basis until all are complete.
