The City of Kingston is again offering clubs, organisations and community groups the opportunity to apply for financial support to run an event during the Kingston Seniors Festival during October 2018. A small grant up to $400 is available to help support the organising and running of these events.

The Kingston Seniors Festival Small Grant program is now open. Applications for a Seniors Festival grant must be received by Friday 6th April 2018. Clubs, organisations and community groups that apply for a grant will be notified of the outcome of their application by mid April 2018.

Grant Conditions

Priority will be given to new events that are open to the wider community, rather than events for existing members. This can include a concert with professional singer, outing, workshop or other activity.

Grants will not be issued to fund regular activities (e.g. meetings).

Grants up to a maximum of $400 per event is available.

Applications which demonstrate collaboration and partnership between groups or clubs will be highly regarded. If applying in partnership with other groups, grants are available for up to $800. Example: two or more community groups involved in the one event can apply for $800.

Funds will be issued at the discretion of Council.

Groups applying for a grant must be incorporated, have a bank account and public liability insurance.

The community group must operate within the City of Kingston and be open to Kingston residents.

Application for a grant does not guarantee success.

A brief overview of your proposed event (including time, date and venue).
