Fund­ing stream for new events

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

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.
