IEDTAC Events Grant


The IEDTAC Festival and Events Grant applications open on Wednesday 6 June with grants of up to $4,000 and logistics support available to eligible tourism events in 2018-2019.

This year’s application only requires you to submit an event marketing plan and event budget. We have removed previous year's questions that often duplicated information within the marketing plans. 

We encourage all event organisers to discuss their application prior to submission to ensure their event is eligible.

Our Events Officer, Lauren Ryan, is holding drop in sessions across the Shire from 12-14 June, where you can discuss your grant application and event eligibility. If you cannot make one of the drop in sessions you can contact us directly to discuss.

The drop in sessions cover both the Community Grants and the Event Grants programs. Members of the Community Development team and Tourism team will be available to discuss the programs and answer any queries. The Community Grants program opens at the same time as the Event Grants program.
