From 11 October, the NSW COVID-19 Roadmap will restrict entry to some Council facilities.
Council is offering financial assistance to community groups to hold small events on Australia Day 2022.
To be eligible for funding, the event must take place on Wednesday 26 January 2022 and be a public event which is accessible to the public.
Any community organisation requesting financial assistance for an event must be Tweed-based and provide an outline of the event.
The organisation must be incorporated and also hold Public Liability Insurance.
Funds are not to be used for a social activity for members of the community organisation exclusively and no financial assistance will be given to privately-owned businesses or companies.
There are 3 levels of funding available:
Category 1 - $300 for up to 149 attendees
Category 2 - $400 from 150 to 249 attendees
Category 3 - $500 for 250-plus attendees
Eligible applications will be assessed by the Tweed Shire Australia Day Awards Selection Panel on Wednesday 27 October 2021.
Successful applicants will be required to place event details on Council’s calendar of events whatsontweed.com.au to ensure the public has information of the event.
The successful applicant must also recognise Council’s support for the event on the day and in all promotional material.
All relevant approvals will need to be applied for and must be in place if the event is to be held on Council-managed land such as a park or beach.
The release of funding is subject to the organisers committing to keep attendees safe by following NSW Public Health Orders at the time.
To apply, please complete the application form on Council’s Australia Day webpage and return your application to Council by Friday 22 October 2021.
