If you are seeking funding for your community event or festival, apply now for the latest round of Mount Alexander Shire Council’s events grants program.

Council is offering funding to assist organisers with the running costs for new and established events and festivals.

“With events so heavily impacted during 2020, and as we anticipate the easing of COVID-19 restrictions across the shire
we are keen to see more applications than ever this year,” said Lisa Knight, Council’s Director Corporate and Community Services.

“Due to so many events being cancelled last year we are able to be more flexible with this round of grants. We have more funds available and we are looking to support events that will be held any time between now and the end of the year,” said Ms Knight.
The current round of events grants is open until Monday 8 March 2021.

“If you are unsure about running an event and meeting COVID-19 restrictions, please get in touch with our friendly Venues and Events Team, as they can guide you through the current restrictions and what you need to know,” said Ms Knight.

Successful event grants recipients will be announced in late April 2021.

Tips for event organisers seeking funding:

• Aim high – When selecting which tier applies to your event, use your highest expected audience numbers and if applicable include your online audience as well.

• Be organised – Get all your quotes and supporting documents ready so you can attach them to your application.

• Be specific – When completing your event description and selection criteria, the more detail the better. We want to know what you are planning and the benefits your event will achieve.

Find out more about the events grants and submit your application via www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/Grants. You chat about your event, application, or ask questions, call Council’s Venues and Events Team on 5471 1700.
