In January 2020, the Victorian Government announced a Bushfire Recovery Round of Regional Events Fund to help kickstart the recovery of regions affected by the summer’s devastating bushfires.
Visit Victoria has released the Regional Events Fund Bushfire Recovery Round Guidelines in order to fast-track support for these communities.
The Bushfire Recovery Round is open until 27 March 2020.
The maximum amount of funding available to events is $20,000.
Events must take place within the following local government areas: Ararat, Alpine, Ballarat, East Gippsland, Glenelg, Golden Plains, Greater Bendigo, Indigo, Mansfield, Moyne, Northern Grampians, Pyrenees, Southern Grampians, Strathbogie, Towong, Wangaratta, Wellington and Wodonga and the Alpine Resorts of Mount Buller, Mount Hotham, Mount Stirling and Falls Creek.
Events that commence after 30 June 2021 will not be considered for funding.
For events outside the 15 Local Government Areas eligible for the Bushfire Recovery Round, the Regional Events Fund remains open for applications. Find out more.
