Economic Development Sponsorship

Above: Start House 100 Pitch Night, supported by NCC economic development sponsorship in 2017

Economic development sponsorship supports projects that promote business growth, tourism and employment in Newcastle, or encourage innovation across our city.

Greater emphasis in 2018 is being placed on initiatives that enhance Council's partnerships with non-government training groups and industry, trade or interest-based associations.

Individual allocations of up to $20,000 are available.

Applications are now closed for 2018 funding.

Our   Economic Development Sponsorship Policy outlines eligibility criteria, the assessment process and the scope of the program.

Please contact Economic Development Coordinator Greg Fenwick ( if you have further queries.
