Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester said the funding would support show societies with a much-needed cash injection after another year of disruptions. "Show societies faced another tough year with numerous lockdowns and restrictions making it near impossible to run events," Mr Chester said.

The Program Guidelines for each funding round set out how applications will be assessed to make sure that all applicants are treated fairly and equally

Boosting local economy

Mr Chester said, "Agricultural shows and field days provide such a boost to the local economy by bringing visitors to the area and an opportunity to showcase the latest innovations and technology. This funding will help recoup costs and prepare for another year of agricultural shows and events."
