Through the Moyne Shire Council’s Community Grants Program, Council aims to build stronger communities and deliver benefits to residents and visitors. The Program is to support the development of new events and to develop the programs of existing events.

Festival and Event Fund

When do applications open? Applications open in April each year and close in May

Who can apply? Festival and Event organisers that meet the guidelines.

How much? Up to $10,000

Reporting Requirements? The Grantee will be required to undertake a post event evaluation.  Post event evaluation reports are required to be submitted within one (1) month of the conclusion of the event. This ensures that measurable data such as attendance figures, tickets sales, survey data, budgets etc are captured early after an event, whilst fresh in mind. To assist event organisers with this process please fill out the post event form.
