The ACT Government is inviting applications to the ACT Event Fund 2022. 

Support under the ACT Event Fund 2022 incorporates two 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: from $15,000 to $30,000 (plus GST), to support the delivery and enhancement of events that can demonstrate strong potential to develop and grow – including the capacity to generate tourist visitation and economic activity.

Events applying for funding under either of these categories must be staged in the 2022 calendar year. Applications will only be considered for single-year funding.

The ACT Event Fund 2022 will be open for applications from Tuesday 3 August 2021 until Monday 13 September 2021 at 3.00pm.

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