Improving event infrastructure
Mr Bull said., "The social connection and economic benefit of these events for regional towns is so important. This is a fantastic opportunity to build and improve our event infrastructure to support the wonderful events we have in our region."
The wide range of projects that are eligible for funding include new or upgraded facilities for the displays for arts and craft, updated fencing or areas used for shearing demonstrations, wool exhibits or judging of animals. There are also opportunities to fund modernisation of amenity blocks, seating, disabled access, and electricity and water supply through the grant program.
"The fund can also support projects which improve biosecurity, such as upgraded signage, or the creation of separate animal housing," Mr Bull said.
