Event Sponsorship Program
The purpose of the Event Sponsorship Program is to support, and provide incentive for community events held in the Launceston City Council 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 applications can be made for up to *$20,000 (plus GST if applicable).
There will be 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 Two 2013/2014 (events 1 January - 31 July 2014)
Applications for Event Sponsorship (Round Two) 2013/2014 for events from 1 January until 31 July 2014 are now open (closing 30 June).
