City of Coffs Harbour’s Arts and Cultural Development Grant Program for projects delivered from July 2024 to June 2025 opens on Monday 5 February 2024 and closes at 4pm on Friday 15 March 2024. 


The Arts and Cultural Development Grants Program is a key action outlined in the Creative Coffs – Cultural Strategic Plan.

The program supports the enjoyment of a rich cultural life within the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area. It provides access and encourages the participation of all people regardless of age, cultural background, education or social status.

The grants are an annual source of funds that artists and community groups can access.

Projects requesting funding should have strong arts, cultural and community benefits. These must be clearly identifiable and, where possible, quantifiable with some measures of success.

Applications for financial support from between $1,000 and $7,000 are available.


Applications are assessed by a panel. They are rated on:

  • eligibility
  • merit of the project (including its response to social, economic and environmental factors)
  • ability of the applicant organisation to manage the project
  • selection criteria (see guidelines)
  • available funds.

Key Dates:

  • 5 February – Applications open online
  • 20 February – Grant Information Workshop (Learning Lab, Level 2, Harry Bailey Memorial Library, Coffs Harbour)
  • 15 March – Entries close
  • June – Applicants advised of outcomes by email
