Queensland Destination Events Program – Round 17

Applications will open in July and close in October with actual dates to be confirmed.  Funding is available for Queensland events being staged between May 2021 and May 2022.  Events play a key role in fostering regional tourism and economic development. Tourism is an essential industry to many rural and regional centres, ensuring economic stability, and events can be a cost-effective way of promoting a region and its attractions – as an event grows, it attracts tourists in its own right.

 

The positive economic impact and interest in a community that a successful regional event can provide not only helps to build a sense of local pride but can also foster confidence and strengthen the community as a whole.   The Queensland Destination Events Program (QDEP), formerly the Regional Development Program (RDP), seeks to leverage the crucial link between events and the destinations in which they are staged, extending the flow of the economic, marketing and social benefits of events throughout metropolitan and regional Queensland.

 

There are two streams of funding:

  • destination event funding – single year funding for developing events seeking growth

($10 000 to $25 000 per year)

  • significant event funding – single year or up to 3 years of funding for events that can demonstrate             a strong track record of growth or growth potential ($25,000 to $100,000 per year).

 

For more information on eligibility, funding uses, funding conditions, and the application process please check the QDEP Funding Guidelines   If you have any questions about the application process, please contact TEQ Ph 3535 3535, via email at events@queensland.com or Ann Leahy’s Electorate Office Ph 1800 625 430 or visit:  https://teq.queensland.com/Events/Events-Support/Queensland-Destination-Events-Program

Celebrating Seniors – Community grant applications

Since first initiated in 1960 by Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland, Queensland Seniors Week has grown substantially.  So much so we are celebrating Queensland seniors all month-long this August!

Seniors Month provides opportunities to promote positive community attitudes towards older people and ageing, facilitate community participation, and enhance community connections, aligning with the Queensland Government’s  and COTA Queensland’s vision of building an Age-friendly Queensland.

COTA Queensland coordinates Queensland Seniors Month on behalf of the Queensland Government and receives funding to collaboratively plan, run and subsidise Seniors Month events and activities.

Starting Monday 3 February and closing Sunday 15 March, community groups, local councils and libraries can apply for up to $1,000, sharing in $100,000 of Queensland Government funding to support events and activities held during the month.

All applications and acquittals are accessed and submitted through  SmartyGrants, an online grant management system.
