Event Sponsorship Program
The purpose of the Event Sponsorship Program is to support, and provide incentive for community events held in the Launceston municipality that contribute to a diverse, vibrant and strategically balanced city events program which result in social, economic, environmental and city image outcomes for the Launceston community.
Event Sponsorship for the 2013/14 year has now CLOSED.
Event sponsorship applications can be made for up to *$20,000 (plus GST if applicable). There are two funding rounds per year. Normally no more than half the budget will be recommended for approval in each funding round. Any money left from one funding round will be carried over to the remaining funding round. No funding will be granted for events that have already commenced or are completed and only one form of funding (i.e. sponsorship or grant) will be provided for any event, per financial year.
Round One 2014/15 (events 1 August - 31 December 2014)
Applications for Event Sponsorship (Round One) 2014/15 for events from 1 August until 31 December 2014 will open 1 February 2014 (closing 31 March).
