Event Recovery Grant Program
Support for not-for-profit community groups in recovering losses for advertised events that were cancelled due to the COVID-19 Disease Emergency.
The recovery from COVID-19 impacts and re-establishing community relationships in the Meander Valley local government area is a key priority for Council. As part of Council's $1.7m COVID-19 Community Care and Recovery Package, an amount of $20,000 has been allocated to support not-for-profit community groups in recovering losses for advertised events that were cancelled due to the COVID-19 Disease Emergency.
To be eligible to apply for an Event Recovery Grant, applicants must:
• Be legally incorporated or operating under the auspices of an incorporated body registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Registration Commission;
• Be inclusive in its membership and support of the broader community;
• Be registered in Australia for taxation purposes with an active ABN;
• Be located and operating in the Meander Valley local government area;
• Not subject to any legal impediment or adverse circumstances;
• Have had in place a clearly stated purpose and event plan (dates, location, etc);
• Demonstrate that the event was to occur in the Meander Valley local government area and was open to the general community; and
• Provide documentation quantifying that a financial expense or loss has been incurred and is not otherwise recoverable e.g. via insurance.
