Event Grants Program
The Event Grants Program recognises the important role events play in shaping the Shire's identity, prosperity and vitality. The program is available to not-for-profit and commercial event organisers that hold an event in the Surf Coast Shire, and enables events to apply under different streams depending on size and focus:
- Community events that take place at any time of the year can seek funding up to $5,000.
- Major events that are held in the off-peak season (post Easter to 15 December) can apply for funding up to $10,000.
- Signature events that are held in the off-peak season (post Easter to 15 December) can apply for funding over $10,000 and are eligible for consideration of multiple year funding.
