Christmas Grants provide financial assistance for community or not-for-profit based organisations and groups to present Christmas carol events and Christmas activities.

Applications are now open for the Festive Season Charitable Quick Response Grant. The Community Christmas Quick Response Grant has been adapted to provide the most benefit and this has been identified as vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the community who are in most need during the festive season and especially this year due to the effects of COVID-19.

Please read the relevant guidelines for program objectives, eligibility information and assessment criteria. Strategies which you may need to address in your application are linked on this page.

The success of an application is determined by merit against the assessment criteria. It is important to note that meeting all criteria does not guarantee that an application will be successful.
