The Latrobe Valley Authority Community and Facility Fund provides a more extensive range of event grants within the Liveable Latrobe Valley stream. This is a one stage application process for grants under $20,000.
Liveable Latrobe Valley
This stream will support projects that will make the Latrobe Valley a better place to live and visit. Supported events may include (but are not limited to) the development or renewal of visitor attractions and community events that bring people together to celebrate the place they live and/or, to work together to achieve community goals, signature events and projects that bring visitors into the Latrobe Valley region and enhance the visitor economy.
Smaller scale community events
Up to $5,000 for smaller scale community events that bring people together to celebrate place or address important community issues and, up to $20,000 for larger scale community events that provide significant visitor economy benefit. A contribution toward the cost of the event is expected but may be negotiated depending on the fund raising capacity of the applicant organisation.
Funding up to 2 years for smaller scale community events
Smaller scale community events may be supported for up to two years to a total of $10,000.
Larger scale community events
Larger scale community events are expected to be managed by organisations with a sound financial and corporate capability.
Signature events negotiated above $20,000 are large or significant events that create strong economic, social or cultural benefit for the Latrobe Valley region.
