“We all know Eurobodalla is a vibrant, diverse and fun place to live and visit, and we want to support events that help celebrate our community,” says Leisa Tague, Eurobodalla Shire Council’s Events Coordinator.
If you have a great idea for a community event but need financial support to get it up and running, then Council’s Community Events Grants could help.
Ms Tague says events scheduled to be held between January and June next year may be eligible for up to $2,000 in assistance.
“Funding will be considered for events that attract 500 or more people and also foster community pride. For example, building strong communities by including a diverse mix of volunteers and participants,” she says.
Ms Tague says applications are open until 5 pm on Wednesday, October 30. “The grants are to be used for costs directly involved in running the event – advertising, equipment hire, entertainers, that kind of thing.”
“All the details are in the guidelines on our website with a link to the application there too, but we’re here to help if you need further assistance.”
Good luck! Please let About Regional know of your upcoming community events. Email – [email protected] or tag us when creating your Facebook event.
