Australia Day Community Grants - 2024

ClosedGrant Closed: 31st of October 2023 - 5:00 pm Value: Up to $15,000 Run By: National Australia Day Council Further Information: https://australiaday.org.au/2024-grants

The National Australia Day Council (NADC) Community Grants Program makes grants available to support communities to hold Australia Day events designed to encourage their community to “reflect, respect, celebrate”.

The grants provided under the program are to support eligible event organisers to offer an inclusive event. Events can be a new or existing public event or activity, a community activity, or an online engagement.

The Australia Day 2024 Community Grants Program (Program) is being made available by the NADC, with the assistance of the Australian Government. The Program makes available grants of:

  • $10,000 (GST exclusive), to assist eligible event organisers to ensure inclusive Australia Day 2024 events proceed (Base Grant); and
  • an additional $5,000 (GST exclusive) for events that include strong recognition of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples (Additional Grant).

Australia Day is a time for all Australians to reflect, respect and celebrate. These grants are to support inclusive events that allow communities to come together and reflect, respect and celebrate the individual and collective efforts of Australians – because we’re all part of the Story of Australia.

This grant opportunity is open to:

  • Australian local government entities;
  • Australian state and territory government entities; and
  • Australian not-for-profit organisations who received an Australia Day 2023 Community Grant from the NADC.

Applicants are encouraged to ensure their event is inclusive of all Australians, including people with disability.

The NADC encourages applicants to work together with local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities to create Australia Day events that are meaningful, reflective, and respectful and change the focus of Australia Day from a celebration of nationalism to a demonstration of the things we share in common and our journey as Australians. For events that include strong recognition of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples, applicants may apply for an Additional Grant ($5,000 (GST exclusive)).
