The Town Hall Hire Subsidy Scheme supports local not-for-profit groups to hold a broad range of subsidised community events in our town halls.

Applications are now open for 2024/25 and will remain open until all funding is gone and will be assessed on an ongoing, weekly basis.

To be eligible for subsidy applicants must:

  • have complied with all terms and conditions including the submission of a satisfactory project status and acquittal reports for all previous City of Port Phillip grants
  • hold current Public Liability Insurance to a minimum of $20 million, which must be submitted three months before the event date. Some private events may be able to opt into Council’s Public Liability Insurance at a rate determined by Council

Successful applicants will receive a full or partial subsidy to hold one event within the 2024/25 financial year at either the St Kilda Town Hall Auditorium or Port Melbourne Town Hall Auditorium.
