Funding Program

Events foster community pride, enrich liveability, drive employment, build skills and enhance perceptions of the region. Through the uniqueness of the Territory we are able to stand apart from other destinations.

Our event funding program plays a significant role in supporting events across the Territory. Applications are invited annually through a competitive funding round.

Following the Federal Government’s restrictions on events to slow the spread of COVID-19, many of the Territory’s events have been cancelled, postponed or rescheduled. Due to the uncertainty these restrictions have created for event organisers, the Northern Territory Major Events Company’s Event Funding Program is on hold.

We understand this is a challenging time for our events industry, and will look to open funding applications as soon as we can.
