Love My Place Grants
The Love My Place grants program seeks to co-create with the Port Phillip community to bring activations, events and unique or experiential ideas to our public spaces when it is safe to do so.
Love My Place grants provide support to our community with an opportunity to trial new ideas through experiential activities. As well as financial support of up to $10,000, City of Port Phillip (CoPP)can support successful applicants with marketing, road closures, parking controls, permit approvals,permission to use spaces and more.
This grants program aims to reactivate public space through unique events and projects ranging from events, music projects, art installations or activations, lighting, seating, amenity, indigenous trails, games and community social gatherings to enhance connections.
