Latest round of Northern Territory event funding opening soon

The new round of the Northern Territory Government’s Event Funding Program will open on 15 July with three categories – Cultural Event, Sport Event and Aboriginal Cultural Event.

Administered by Northern Territory Major Events Company (NTMEC), the funding will support events of all shapes and sizes that highlight the uniqueness of the Territory, from the Top End to the Red Centre.

Each round supports a wide variety of events, including cultural days, music festivals, major sporting events and special interest events.

“We are thrilled to support an array of inclusive and colourful events and festivals through the Event Funding Program,” said NTMEC event funding manager Alison Wheeler.

“The program is responsible for supporting some of the most exciting and iconic events in country, that not only bring people to the region but enhances the liveability for Territorians.

“The Territory hosts some of the most inclusive and diverse events in Australia, many of which attract national and even international attention. We can’t wait to see who applies in this new round.”

Information sessions are planned for Alice Springs today and Darwin on 11 July. To make it easier for event organisers, the Darwin session will include a representative from the Community Benefit Fund to explain guidelines for both funding streams.

For session details and to RSVP email ntmec.grants@nt.gov.au. Applications will close on August 9.
