Community Grants and Sponsorship

Have you got the next big idea for the Central Coast? Make it happen with Central Coast Council’s Community Grants and Sponsorship.

Central Coast Council has adopted a new grants and sponsorship funding program for the Coast, giving the community more opportunities to apply for funding to support their events, programs and initiatives.

Council has aligned its former Gosford and Wyong sponsorship and grants policies to create programs that will enable Council to better support and build capacity in the Central Coast community.
