2019/20 Grant Program - Round 4 Open

Event Grants are open on a continuing basis, until funding has been allocated each year.

However, in order for you to receive confirmation on whether you have been successful in securing funding prior to your event occurring, you must submit your application in accordance with the timeframes below. Council will not provide funding to an event that will occur prior to the approval date or have sufficient time for promotion. If you are interested in applying for a grant in the next round, you are advised to submit your outdoor event booking form soon. 

Major event applications may be negotiated outside of the above timelines - please contact the Events team.

Further information can be found within the Guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions.
