Grants and funding

The City of Hobart grants program supports community-driven activities that make a real difference for people and communities. Our grants can help bring your idea or project to fruition.

Through cash and resource grants we invest in activities that enhance our community and culture and shape the social and economic life of the city.

We seek to award a mix of grants that meet the diverse needs of the community and business in Hobart. We fund activities that represent excellent value for the level of cash support requested and do not duplicate existing services or grants provided by other organisations.

Our grant programs are listed below – click on the most relevant link for the grant you wish to apply for. Each grant program has specific guidelines detailing program objectives, eligibility information and assessment criteria.

For more information on the City's approach to managing the City of Hobart Grants Program, please refer to the Grants Program Policy(PDF, 137KB).

The City of Hobart has begun a review of its current funding model for how the City funds activities and what it expects in return. For more information, visit the funding review page.
