Funding stream for new events
Organisers of new and second-year events planned for the second half of this year are being encouraged to apply for the NSW Government’s 2018 Incubator Event Fund.
The fund offers a one-off grant of up to $20,000 for new and existing smaller-scale events.
‘‘This is a fantastic opportunity for the event owners in our region who need extra support to help their event get off the ground or help it grow into something bigger,’’ Member for Albury Greg Aplin said.
‘‘Whether it’s for marketing, public relations, venue hire or attendee research, this $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 wonderful region.
‘‘I encourage those eligible to apply soon so they don’t miss out on this wonderful initiative.’’
Applications for round two of the 2018 Incubator Event Fund are open until Sunday, March 18, 2018. To lodge an application and to view the criteria visit, www.destinationnsw.com.au/rfep.
