Sydney Streets Haymarket, Katherine Griffiths

As part of the City of Sydney’s Haymarket and Chinatown revitalisation strategy, we’ve introduced a new activation grant that will support one major project a year for $200,000.

Funding will prioritise projects that:

  • celebrate Asian cultures and communities
  • strengthen social inclusion, enable connectedness and reduce social isolation
  • support the visitor economy through activations, events and promotion
  • represent the cultural and social diversity of our communities
  • activate Haymarket with creative and cultural programming.

Not-for-profit and for-profit organisations can apply.

Projects must take place from 1 September 2024 to 30 June 2025.

Applications close at 5pm on Monday 17 June 2024.

We’re hosting an online briefing session, open to all on Tuesday 21 May.

The session includes a briefing, overview of the priorities, eligibility and general requirements. Registration is essential.
