The Indigo Economic Development and Tourism Advisory Committee (IEDTAC) Tourism Events Grant provides grants of up to $4000 and logistics support for eligible events within Indigo Shire. 

 You can also visit Victoria’s Regional Events Fund (REF) provides funding for activities that support regional visitation. This is achieved by supporting events that: 
  • Increase economic benefits by driving visitation from outside of the region and the state and extending length of stay and yield
  • Showcase Victoria’s key regional tourism strengths and build Victoria’s reputation as an events destination
  • Develop a strong and sustainable calendar of regional events.

There are four rounds annually, and applicants are required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) at least six months prior to the event. 

Creative State Commissions is an initiative of the Victorian Government’s Creative State Strategy. The program will commission major new works by Victorian independent creative practitioners and organisations that are ambitious in scope and scale, that have the potential to create an enduring legacy through widespread audience and community engagement, and that increase tourism to the state.
