Australia: City of Logan announces Small Events Grant 2022
The City of Logan is pleased to announce the Small Events Grant 2022.
The City of Logan is known for its vibrancy and community spirit. One of the cornerstones of that spirit is our annual calendar of community-driven events. The events delivered by the community, are a vital part of the fabric of our city. They value these events and the experiences and opportunities they provide our community.
There are two funding options available through the Community Events Funding Program:
Small Event Grant $200 – $2,000
This grant is for small events, normally with less than 1,000 people expected.
These small community events tend to be aimed at a particular group in the community.
Event Sponsorship $2,001 – $20,000
Event sponsorship is available for large events, normally with over 1,000 people expected to attend and which have a broad community appeal.
What They Can Fund?
Their goal is to support events that promote and celebrate all the things we love about our city.
Events that will be conducted within the boundaries of Logan City and benefit members of the Logan community (i.e. not only to the benefit of an individual); OR
Events that will not be conducted within the boundaries of Logan City, but will benefit members of the Logan community (i.e. not only to the benefit of an individual).
Please provide detailed information in your application describing the benefit to the Logan community, identifying the groups that will benefit and how. This should be included in the Event Description.
With events that will be held outside of the boundaries of Logan City, while there may be benefit to members of the Logan community, preference is given to events that are delivered within the boundaries of Logan City.
Events must demonstrate that they support Council’s community purpose:
Encourage a vibrant, engaged and resilient community
Build on the strengths in the local community

Promote and encourage environmental protection and sustainability
Support our city vision of ‘Innovative, Dynamic, City of the Future’
