Youth Week Grants
Applications for Council’s 2021 Youth Week Grants have opened with local groups encouraged to apply to be involved in the celebrations of the largest annual youth participation event in Australia.
Spread the word! Youth Week will be celebrated from Friday 16 April to Saturday 24 April 2021.
As part of Youth Week, Council, in collaboration with the Department of Family and Community Services, provides funding to groups which involve young people in planning, developing and managing activities.
Non-profit, incorporated organisations or groups that want to work with young people to deliver a 2021 Youth Week event can apply for up to $3,000 in funding.
To be successful, applications will need to provide information on the proposed Youth Week event and how young people will be involved throughout the planning and coordinating. Applicants are also encouraged to collaborate with other groups where possible.
Maitland City Council are encouraging young people aged 12 to 25 who currently live, work or study in Maitland, to be part of the Youth Week Grants assessment panel for 2021.
The Maitland Youth Week Grants Program Committee is responsible for assessing applications and allocating funding to successful grant recipients under the Council governed Maitland Youth Week Grant Program. The program provides funding to local groups and service providers to organise Youth Week celebrations across Maitland during between Friday 16 April to Saturday 24 April 2021.
