The government is encouraging organisers of events in rural and regional NSW to apply for a one-off grant of up to $20,000.
The Incubator Event Fund provides seed funding to innovative new events to help them through their initial establishment phase. It also helps with event staging costs, marketing, publicity and research. Funding is available to organisers who are staging an event for the first or second time between July and December 2017.
Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said rural and regional events were a wonderful celebration of community culture.
“They are often run by locals and showcasing local producers, artists, craftspeople, sportspeople and musicians,” Mr Marshall said.
Applications close on Sunday 2 April 2017.
