INPEX Community Sponsorship and Investment Program

Update - June 2019

The second and final public application round of the 2019 Community Sponsorship and Investment Program will open from 1-31 July 2019. 

Community organisations that are interested in making an application for funding of up to A$ 5000 should first read INPEX’s Sponsorship Application Guidelines to ensure that their initiative (program/event) meets the eligibility criteria and focus areas of the Program.

Applications may be made for initiatives taking place from October 2019 through to early 2020.

Submissions may then be made using the online Sponsorship Application Form.

An application may be saved and resumed at any point but must be fully submitted by 31 July.

All applications will be assessed by the INPEX Sponsorship Committee in August, and applicants advised of the outcome of their submission by late August.

It should be noted that it may take up to two months to complete the payment of sponsorship funds to successful applicants after the sponsorship is awarded. Please take this timeframe into account if you wish to make an application.
