RVCís Event Support Scheme now open

APPLICATIONS for Richmond Valley Council’s Event Support Scheme are now open.

The scheme offers funding for eligible organisations to help showcase local festivals and events held between July 1 2018 and June 30 2019 which have the ability or potential to attract visitors to the region, achieve media attention and involve and inspire the local community.

Both cash and in-kind support is available. An in-kind contribution may, for example, include the provision of rubbish bins at an event, or traffic management support, or marketing opportunities.

Council has a rich history of supporting arts, cultural, community, sporting and special interest events. Some of the previous recipients of this funding have been the Casino Truck Show, Evans Head Great Eastern Fly-In, Woodburn Riverside Festival, Quota Arts & Craft Fair, Northern Rivers Auto Spectacular, and many more.

When applying for the Event Funding Support Scheme, applicants will be required to meet the specific criteria outlined in the guidelines using the application form provided and supply the required supporting documentation.

Applications are open until 5pm Monday 29 January. Applications will be assessed between February and March and event organisers will be notified by May next year.
