ACT Event Fund 2023

The ACT Government is inviting applications to the ACT Event Fund 2023.

The ACT Event Fund 2023 will be open for applications from Thursday 4 August 2022 until Monday 5 September 2022 at 3.00pm.

Support under the ACT Event Fund 2023 incorporates two (2) funding categories, Community Event Funding and Event Development Funding.

  • Community Event Funding: up to $15,000 (plus GST), to support the delivery and enhancement of events that can encourage local engagement and participation.
  • Event Development Funding: up to $30,000 (plus GST), to support the delivery and enhancement of events that can demonstrate strong potential to develop and grow – including capacity to generate tourist visitation and economic activity.

Events applying for funding under either of these categories must be staged in the 2023 calendar year. Applications will only be considered for single-year funding.

Please note that extensions will not be granted, and late applications will not be accepted.
