Each year Council contributes a percentage of ratepayer income towards the sponsorship of Icon Events.
Icon Events are larger scale events deemed to be of state, national and/or international calibre, which demonstrate potential to generate high level of economic activity or stimulate large scale community interest, involvement and/or development.
The first round funding cut off is the first Monday in May and applies to events occuring in the following financial year. Should any funding remain after the first round it will be allocated at adhoc intervals during the financial year until the funding pool is exhausted or the conclusion of the financial year.
To apply for funding, event organisers must complete and return the Icon Event Sponsorship Application Form to Shire's Marketing and Events Officer.
The Shire of Augusta Margaret River provides financial assistance to community organisations and individuals within our local community to enhance community values and aspirations.
The Financial Assistance Policy addresses the types of financial assistance, amount of assistance and the Shire Officer responsible for determination of requests. Objectives of the Policy are to provide an overarching framework for the Shire of Augusta Margaret River to administer financial assistance and its implementation will ensure:
Financial Assistance Categories under the new Policy are sponsorship, donation, waiver of fees and charges, community grants, Council contribution and interest free loans. Under each of these categories applicants must meet specific eligibility criteria which are provided in the guidelines accompanying the application form and that only one request, for only one type of financial assistance per financial year (July to June), may be lodged.
A copy of the Financial Assistance policy is available for download under Publications.
