This grant program supports new and exciting projects and initiatives that reflect the goals of Council’s Cultural Policy and the Creative Coffs Cultural Strategic Plan 2017-2022 which forms the foundation of the selection criteria.

Priority is given to projects which develop partnerships, skills and have ongoing benefits for the community.
