Grants in the City

As of 1 January 2018, the management of the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy transferred from In The City Canberra to the City Renewal Authority. Views expressed in these articles may not reflect the views of the Authority.

In the City Canberra has today launched a new program, Grants in the City.

Grants in the City has been created to support individuals, groups and businesses to realise their projects in the heart of Canberra

It is a program that recognises the value of bringing the community together and growing pride in the CBD.
