FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ON OFFER FOR LOCAL EVENTS
New and second-year events in the Tamworth electorate could be in line for a one off grant of up $20,000 from the NSW Government’s 2018 Incubator Event Fund, which supports events held in rural and regional NSW.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said organisers of eligible events held between July and December 2018 are being encouraged to apply for the funds for new and existing smaller-scale events.
“I know many organisations in our region that are keen to get more events happening so this is a perfect chance for to attract some funding to get them going or to grow an existing event,” Mr Anderson said.
“The $20,000 grant will assist in attracting more overnight visitors to the region, in the hope they stay longer and spend more time exploring our incredible region.
“We have a number of long-standing iconic events that contribute greatly to our local economy and with these one off grants we can continue that success for newer events.
“I urge eligible organisations to get their applications in as soon as possible to take advantage of this funding opportunity.”
The Regional Flagship Events Program is managed and administered through the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
Applications for round two of the 2018 Incubator Event Fund are open until Sunday 18 March 2018. To lodge an application and to view the criteria visit,
