Grant programs include:
- Food Grants Program
- Small Grants Program
- North Sydney ClubGRANTS Program.
You can understand more about what is eligible to be funded and the purpose of the program by reading this Grants and Subsidies Council Report 2017-18 (720KB)
Applications for the 2018-19 funding round are NOW OPEN
Each year North Sydney Council provides funding via the Small Grants Funding Program to local community organisations who provide services to our local residents. Funding amounts are generally in the range of $500 - $2,000 and should be seen as a contribution rather than a commitment to fund the entire service.

Food Grants Program
(Applications now Closed)
This funding program is for projects and services run by local, not-for-profit organisations that provide food assistance to people most in need in the North Sydney area.
Take a look at some of the successful Food Grant projects for 2018...
Church by the Bridge

The Kirribilli Centre
Free weekly lunch for disadvantaged and socially isolated members of our community. The community lunch provides a safe, welcoming space where people from all backgrounds in our community can come together and build relationships. A community Christmas lunch is also provided.
Crows Nest Centre
Crows Nest Centre supplies festive hampers to older people and people with a disability, most of whom live alone. To achieve this we work in partnership with local schools and churches to gather festive food items for distribution. A willing band of volunteers then assists us to sort, allocate and package festive hampers. The aim is to share the Christmas spirit with people who are often on their own over the Christmas/new year period.
