Signature Event Grants

Shire of Ashburton Signature Event Grants

Applications for the Signature Event Grant will be accepted from 20 February until 28 March for projects or activities taking place between 23 August 2023 and 31 June 2025.

Applications must be received by the advertised closing date and may take up to eight weeks to be assessed for eligibility. Council will formally consider and approve applications in the following year’s financial budget allocation.

Incorporated and non-incorporated associations can apply. Commercial organisations cannot apply. 

Applications are to be completed in full by an Office Bearer or authorised delegate.

Applications are initially assessed by Shire Officers for eligibility, then considered for approval by Council.

Applicants agree to submit an acquittal report, using the template provided by the Shire, within three months of the completion of the event, containing:

  1. An evaluation of the event.
  2. Proof that the grant was expended according to the approved application and distribution of any proceeds or profits.

Please ensure that you consider the Shire of Ashburton Disability and Inclusion Plan (DAIP)  when submitting your application.

All areas of the application form must be completed; additional information may be attached if required.

Applications will not be funded retrospectively, unless the assistance is held up by budget adoption.


The grants are competitive and decisions to fund part or all of a request are based on:

  1. The extent to which the project directly benefits the residents of the Shire of Ashburton
  2. Funding and/or contributions from other sources
