Time to prepare your grant applications

Grants support events delivered between 1 July 2024 and 30 June 2025, events can be big or small, but must deliver a “positive difference” to the Hume community.
Who can apply?
- Community groups or organisations based in Hume. See the Program Guidelines.
- Businesses or for-profit organisations based in Hume (noting that they must provide matched cash funding for any amount requested)
- Events being held in the Hume City
- Events and festivals must demonstrate a positive benefit to the Hume City or Hume community
The 2024 Hume Arts Grants applications open Monday 29 January. Full details here.
Applicants can also apply for other council services as an in-kind grant request. This might include a request for council to waive venue or park hire fees, event permit fees, bin hire fees, etc.
