Grants available in Tweed to celebrate Grandparents Day

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest today encouraged local organisations to celebrate the valuable contribution grandparents make in the Tweed community, by applying for $100,000 in funding available under the NSW Grandparents Day Community event grants program. 

The NSW Government has allocated $100,000 in funding for community groups, volunteer organisations and local councils to host events on NSW Grandparents Day Sunday 30 October 2016.


“Grandparents play a significant role in the home and the community, and this extra funding is the NSW Government’s way of thanking them for their hard work,” Mr Provest said.


“For the first time grants of up to $5,000 are available to support NSW Grandparents Day activities this year.


“This is the perfect time to show our recognition and support for grandparents in Tweed for the amazing role they play in our lives.


“I urge everyone in Tweed to celebrate them by organising an event in the community.”  


For the first time there are two funding categories available this year through the grants program, offering:

  • Tier 1 Grants of up to $1,000 for small-scale local community events or activities, and
  • Tier 2 Grants from $1,001 to $5,000 for large-scale region-wide events targeted at local government and larger community organisations.


Applications for the NSW Grandparents Day Community event grants program are now open and close on Friday 12 August 2016.
