Initiatives & funding

City of Gold Coast provides a number of funding programs and initiatives to assist incorporated not-for-profit community organisations that support the Gold Coast community.

Community Grants Program

The Community Grants Program is an annual program that provides financial assistance to incorporated, not-for-profit community organisations for projects and activities that have a broad community benefit (rather than local or divisional benefit). For more information visit our Community Grants Program page.

Mayoral and Divisional Donations Program

The Mayoral Donations Program supports and stimulates projects, activities, equipment or operational functions that have a whole of city focus.

The Divisional Donations Program supports and stimulates projects, activities, equipment or operational functions that have a divisional or local focus.

Find more information on the Mayoral and Divisional Donations Program page.

Nature Conservation Assistance Program (NCAP)

The City provides financial assistance to private landholders for on-ground restoration projects that protect and enhance the natural assets of the Gold Coast. Please refer to the Nature Conservation Assistance Program (NCAP) for more information.

Resources to assist with funding application preparation

The Gold Coast City Community Profile presents data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Census of Population and Housing in 2016, 2011, 2006, 2001, 1996 and 1991 for the City of Gold Coast local government area, and for smaller areas within it (e.g. suburbs). This data is presented in easy to use tables, charts and commentary which can assist with compiling community statistics and data for inclusion in funding applications.

The Gold Coast City Community Atlas presents demographic data for the area in a series of interactive maps. A range of maps are available, including maps on population, ethnicity, education, household type, labour force, how people travel to work, housing tenure and cost, and computer use.
