Town Hall Subsidy Grant 2021/2022

This is a preview of the Town Hall Subsidy Grant Application form. When you’re ready to apply, click Fill Out Now to begin.


The City of Yarra's Town Hall Subsidy Grant for Community Events program offers eligible groups an opportunity to hire a Yarra town hall at a reduced rate. Not-for-Profit community groups operating within Yarra can apply for discounted use for one event held at a Yarra Town Hall per financial year for a period 12 hours or less.

This application should be submitted at least 3 weeks before the event date to allow for assessment. We strongly recommend that this application is submitted after the details of the hall booking have been finalised.

Successful applicants will receive a 90% discount on eligible elements of their hall hire fee. However, if changes are made to the booking after this application has been assessed which increase the hire fee, these additional costs will need to be covered in full by the hirer. If changes are made that reduce the cost of the booking, the amount of discount received will reduce to 90% of eligible elements of the hall hire fee.

Please note that submission of this application does not automatically provide a discount on your use of the required venue. You will be notified of the outcome of your application in time to confirm the booking.

Each application must meet the following requirements:

  • Applicant organisations must be an incorporated not-for-profit group, or a  registered charity, public benevolent institution, state or federal government entity, or have DGR status.  
         (Unincorporated organisations may be auspiced by an eligible organisation .)
  • All applicants must be locally based and/or be applying for the Town Hall Subsidy Grant for an event/activity that includes and is of benefit to Yarra residents and the local community.
  • Applicants are only eligible to receive one Town Hall Subsidy Grant each financial year.
  • Only one application will be approved for any booking/event.
