New Council Event Funding Program

Lake Macquarie City Council is set to launch a new events funding program to deliver events and activities across the City that benefit the community and support the outcomes of the draft Event and Festival Strategy and Action Plan.

Manager Arts, Culture and Tourism Jacqui Hemsley said the new application process will streamline the way the community seeks funding assistance from Council.

"Our new Event Funding Program offers financial support to not-for-profit community organisations for projects, equipment, events, exhibitions or performances which contribute positively to our community," Ms Hemsley said.

"The funding is available across three categories – local events and celebrations, community events, and sponsored events and festivals.

"We’re also hosting three information sessions for applicants, so I encourage community event organisers to come along and learn more about the new funding program, the online process and how to put together a competitive application.”

The first round of Event Funding is set to open and close in June.
