All event organisers MUST register their event and submit documentation via the State Government website. See below for more information

Quick Response Grants support the delivery of outcomes that have positive impacts on the wider Wellington community. Eligible projects submitted under this program will be assessed within two weeks.

We understand that there are circumstances where the community may need some financial assistance to complete a project, run an event or undertake some maintenance on their facility. This grant is provided to support minor initiatives that encourage partnerships, celebrate an occasion and assist with maintenance of community assets.

These grants are open all year round. Applications now need be made through the SmartyGrants online application service.

Please read the funding guidelines below and complete a Grant Notification Form or contact the Grants Officer on 1300 366 244 to receive feedback on your proposal and ensure you are eligible to apply and your application meets all funding guidelines.

Attention Event Organisers

We're helping to keep Victorian events safe.

Questions relating to public events can be directed to the 24/7 Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398 or emailed to COVIDSafeEvents@ecodev.vic.gov.au.
