 The Hive Community Grants program is designed to help community organisations in the Mid North Coast, Hunter, and New England regions.  

As part of our Hive 5 approach, we understand the importance of strong communities. The grants are a one-off financial contribution, organisations can apply for up to $10,000 in funding to help boost their community-based events and projects.

The purpose of the grants is to boost our local economies after months of COVID-19 restrictions have taken a toll on our social and environmental-based hubs. The grants program aims to:

  • Provide financial aid to organisations who have suffered during COVID-19 restrictions
  • Bring our communities together to create more opportunities for community connection, engagement, and inclusion
  • Help organisations build their capacity for community-related events

The Hive Community Grants program is available to all community organisations with a project or initiative that helps promote active community participation. 

Applications for the 21-22 grants are now closed. 

The 22-23 grants will reopen in the second half of
