Goulburn Mulwaree Council has two streams of funding available under the Event Development Funding Policy to support the development of events in the region.
Incubator Event funding is available to new or existing events in the region to support their first three years of activity. The fund supports innovative events that demonstrate sound planning, have an alignment with the character and culture of the region and a broad appeal.
The second stream of funding is dedicated to Sports Tourism Events. Demand for Goulburn as a host venue for regional and state-based sporting events is high, with demand for national events growing. Funding under this stream is available to attract, deliver, stage and promote a broad range of sporting events.
Goulburn Railway Men’s and Women’s Bowling Clubs have both been successful applicants of Goulburn Mulwaree Council’s Event Development Funding.
“As standalone clubs we have to raise our own finances in order to run bowls tournaments in Goulburn,” said president of the Goulburn Railway Men’s Bowling Club, Reg Thoms.
“The sponsorship given to the clubs by Goulburn Mulwaree Council enables us to run our Annual Rose Tournaments and thus bring many visitors to our city from clubs across the state. The application process is very well structured with the staff concerned very helpful at all stages.”
A combination of both cash and in-kind support up to the value of $5000 is available per event.
Funding is open all year round and Council is now accepting applications for events occurring prior to 30 June 2019.
