Around the Shepparton region, 19 community groups have been awarded grants for a range of purposes from the Greater Shepparton City Council. The Council approved $20,500 in grants ranging from $500 to $2000 for small events and from $2000 to $5000 for larger events.
Greater Shepparton City Council aims to celebrate the local community and our diverse region through a range of major and community events each year. The various events supported by Council include sporting, cultural, commemorative, festive as well as annual community events.
The Event Grants program provides financial assistance as well as marketing support to groups who are organising events within the Greater Shepparton municipality.
The total amount of funding allocated to the Small and Large Events Program is $45,000 for the 2019/2020 financial year. This amount is split into two rounds.
The next round of Events Grants will open on Monday 2 December 2019 and close on Monday 10 February 2020. Visit http://greatershepparton.com.au/community/grants-and-funding/events-grant for more information.
