Events can include - but are not limited to - picnics, online parties, reunions sports carnivals or seminars, with funding open to community and industry groups, clubs and associations, and local governments.
Organisations can apply for funding for one or more events, to a maximum of $10,000 for each event.
Applications are open until March 31, 2021, or when funding is exhausted, whichever comes first.
