The Indigo Economic Development and Tourism Advisory Committee (IEDTAC) Tourism Events Grant provides grants of up to $6000 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 Victoria have a VicArts Grants program that invests in the creative endeavours and professional practice of Victoria's artists and smaller arts companies.
