Major Events Grants

In May 2023 Council decided to expand the scope of the Major Event Grants to include a broader range of projects, in addition to major events.  To be eligible, applicants must demonstrate that their project will bring economic benefits to the Shire. 

An amount of $30,000 will be budgeted each year to support projects that can demonstrate economic outcomes, such as increasing local investment, building the capacity of local businesses, attracting more tourists to stay longer, increasing local sustainable jobs and enticing more people to call our local communities their home.

Information about the Economic Development Grant is available from Economic Development Grant Guidelines on Shire website

The former Major Event Grant will no longer be offered. From July 2023 it will be replaced by the annual Economic Development Grant
