Events Grant Program

 We are reviewing and updating our approach to funding events in our community. This will help us: 

  • ensure there is consistency across our grant programs
  • make the application process simpler, and make it easier for applicants to understand their eligibility and the criteria by which their applications will be assessed
  • make the funding of events smoother and more efficient
  • create  opportunities to better support a more diverse range of events across the whole of the City of PAE
  • better meet the changing needs and interests of our community
  • support a program of diverse and dynamic events

During July and August 2019 we conducted a survey about proposed changes for the Events Grant Program in 2020.  The survey is now closed and information about the findings will be made available shortly.  A later review stage will focus on a new Sponsorship Model for flagship events.

Here is the Summary of proposed changes

Here is a draft set of new Events Grant Guidelines which include all the proposed changes.

The new guidelines would replace the existing Sponsorship - General/ Major Events Policy
