Sydney District Funding Criteria

APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED- as of 16/11/17

The Spring 2017 Funding Round is now Open- applications close Thursday 16th November 2017


We have opened the applications from agencies to run parenting education programs for families with children 0-8 years.


Agencies in the Sydney LHD are able to apply when planning to run a program in Term 1 -Term 3 2018.

Background of the Resourcing Parents Sydney Districts Small Grant Scheme

Launched as the Inner West Small Grants Scheme in July 2003, the small grants scheme contributes to approximately 35-40 parenting initiatives each year.

It is proudly supported by Families NSW to encourage and assist not-for-profit agencies (for example pre-schools, early intervention services, health, non-government agencies, councils, schools) to deliver parenting education information, support and courses to families in the Sydney Local Health District who have children aged 0-8 years.

The events funded through the Small Grants scheme must  be held in the Sydney Local Health District. The SLHD is comprised of seven complete Local Government Areas (LGAs): Ashfield, Burwood, City of Canada Bay, Canterbury City/Bankstown, Leichhardt, Marrickville and Strathfield.

In addition, two of the four Statistical Local Areas (SLAs) of the City of Sydney LGA are included within SLHD’s eastern boundary. These are the Sydney - South and the Sydney - West SLAs. See map for the exact boundaries.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss with agencies their applications, prior to their submission, contact Belinda Power via email weblink http://www.resourcingparents.nsw.gov.au/Contact or Telephone 9736 9852 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
