Tourism funding up for grabs

Tourism funding up for grabs

Local event organisers are being encouraged to apply for grants under the 2018 Flagship Event Fund.

The fund will offer successful applicants a one-off annual grant of $20,000 or a triennial grant of $27,500 per year for three years.

“The 2018 Flagship Event Fund are now open, providing events that have been running for more than two years with funding support for marketing activities aimed at driving overnight visitation,” Port Macquarie MP Leslie Williams said.

“Our communities have so many wonderful stories to tell and we know that events not only help boost our local economies but take visitors on an incredible journey, whether it’s showcasing our fantastic producers, artists, craftspeople, sportspeople or musicians.”

The fund is managed by the State’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.

Expressions of interest for the 2018 Flagship Event Fund are open until September 1.
