Funding for Community Events in Temora Shire

Published on 02 May 2022


Temora Shire Council was allocated $239,651 through the Reconnecting Regional NSW – Community Events Program to assist with the delivery of community events.

The funding comes as part of the NSW Government’s $200 million Regional Recovery Package which is focused on supporting the economic and social recovery of regional NSW. The funding is designed to create new jobs and support community events, shows and festivals to boost tourism.

Temora Shire Council is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from within our community for event concepts that meet the funding criteria. EOI’s will be open from Tuesday 3rd May until Wednesday 27th May 2022.

“Temora Shire Council has been extremely fortunate to have been allocated such a sizable amount of funding from the NSW Government that will support a range of organisations in the community to deliver events between August 2022 and March 2023,” said Mayor, Rick Firman.

Council encourages any members of the Shire community who would like to hold an eligible event to submit an expression of interest.

“Council will review all submissions against the funding criteria. We are keen to support existing and new event concepts, especially those that can reconnect our community and encourage tourism. It is also particularly important that proposed events utilise local operators and businesses,” concluded Mayor Firman.

The expression of interest form and supporting information for applicants can be found on Council’s website at
