City of Melbourne

Welcome to City of Melbourne's portal for grants and sponsorships.

Grants and sponsorships help recipients deliver quality programs, events, products and services which are of great benefit to Melbourne and Melburnians alike and which bring a wide range of social and economic returns to the city.

We have a strong commitment to accessibility, encouraging individuals and organisations of all backgrounds and abilities to apply for funding, which aims to support a diverse range of people across the community. For more information see the statement from the Lord Mayor Robert Doyle, with Auslan interpreter and closed captions.
