Applications for Maitland City Council’s 2021 Youth Week Grants have opened with local groups encouraged to apply to be involved in the celebrations of the largest annual youth participation event in Australia.

As part of Youth Week, Council, in collaboration with the Department of Family and Community Services, provides funding to groups which involve young people in planning, developing and managing activities.

Thousands of young people aged 12–25 from across Australia get involved in National Youth Week each year. National Youth Week is an opportunity for young people to:
a) Share ideas;
b) Attend live events;
c) Have their voices heard on issues of concern to them;
d) Showcase their talents;
e) Celebrate their contribution to the community;
f) Take part in competitions and have fun!

Utilize This Offer

2021 Maitland Youth Week grants are available to any nonprofit, incorporated organisations that are working directly with young people to deliver a Youth Week event for other local young people.

Youth Week will be celebrated from Friday 16 April to Saturday 24 April 2021.

Applicants can submit one application under one of the two categories:
Category One: Independent Submission - Individual organisations or groups can apply for up to $1,000.
Category Two: Collaborative Submission - Multiple organisations or groups collaborating to organize a large project or event can apply for up to $3,000.

There is an expectation that all events will undergo a thorough risk assessment prior to and during the event.

All Youth Week activities and events must have free entry and be alcohol, smoke and drug-free.

Applications close 21 January 2021.
