The threat of the spread of COVID-19 has resulted in unprecedented impacts on businesses and our commercial centres.
While the priority strategies for the Placemaking Grants Program remain, we welcome applications for innovative programs that will assist businesses during this crisis.
We recognise that project delivery may be restricted due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and associated social distancing requirements. Programs could be delivered online or via other innovative platforms that observe social distancing restrictions. Applicants are encouraged to submit innovative and inspiring projects that respond to these uncertain times. Also, social distancing restrictions are constantly changing and projects that now may not be allowed possibly will be by the end of the period, i.e. 30 June 2021.
The Placemaking Grant application form includes questions asking applicants to demonstrate how the project and/or activity can be delivered in a COVID-19 environment.
