Help with events available
APPLICATIONS for Richmond Valley Council’s Event Support Scheme are now being taken.
The scheme offers funding for eligible organisations to help showcase local festivals and events held between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2019, which have the ability or potential to attract visitors to the region, get media attention and involve and inspire the local community.
Both cash and in-kind support is available, such as the provision of rubbish bins at an event, traffic management support or marketing opportunities.
Some of the previous recipients of this funding have been the Casino Truck Show, Evans Head Great Eastern Fly-In, Woodburn Riverside Festival, Quota Arts and Craft Fair, and Northern Rivers Auto Spectacular.
Applicants will be required to meet specific criteria and supply the required supporting documentation.
Applications are open until January 29. Visit www. richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au, phone 6660 0300 or email council@richmondvalley. nsw.gov.au to discuss an application prior to submission.
