Expression of Interest (EOI) - Bega Valley Shire Council Stream 1 Application to Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grant Program.

Grant Guidelines

About the Expression of Interest

Application to the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grants program is by invitation only. In the Bega Valley area Bega Valley Shire Council (Council) and Destination Southern NSW are the only invited applicants who are able to apply under this program.

To extend grant the opportunity to the Bega Valley community the Council is seeking expressions of interest from community groups, not for profits and businesses to support up to $5,000 smaller scale events across the Shire. The events will need to meet the objectives of the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grants program and occur between 1 May 2020 to 30 May 2021.

Expressions of interest open on 13 March 2020 and open until further notice. To apply complete the EOI form and email to by the closing date. A grant panel will assess the EOI’s against criteria noted in item 4 of these guidelines. If your EOI is successful it will be included in Council’s Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grants Stream 1 application. The outcome of Council’s Stream 1 application will be assessed by the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grants program’s independent assessment panel. The outcome of the assessment is not guaranteed and projects included in Council’s application may be funded, part funded or not funded. 

Note: Due to COVID- 19 implications the guidelines of the Regional Tourism Bushfire Recovery Grants program and the Expression of Interest have been changed. Any changes in the EOI application and guidelines are highlighted.
