The City of Newcastle has allocated funding of $60,000 to support an innovative grant program to help turn your ideas into worthy actions.

The aim of the Boost Your Place - Placemaking grant is to encourage and support community members to stay socially connected or reconnect, on-line or in real places, considering COVID-19 health advice and physical distancing restrictions.

Applications have now closed

We received a wonderful variety of Boost Your Place grant applications.

All eligible video pitches were shared with the community during The MOZ, a Massive Online Zoom session on 3rd September 2020. The community were able to vote for their three favourite ideas and interact online in real time.

In the coming weeks all applications will be assessed against both eligibility and assessment criteria, with final decisions on funding made by the Placemaking Assessment Panel.

Outcomes will be communicated to applicants by the end of September. Successful applications will be listed here on our website once all applicants are notified and funding agreements finalised.
