Northern Development launches new Festival and Event funding program

September 24, 2015


Northern Development announced today the launch of its Fabulous Festivals and Events program, which provides non-profit organizations with up to $2,500 in annual grant funding to support unique events and festivals throughout the region that contribute to service sector revenues in the local economy.

The grants provide a source of reliable annual event hosting capacity funding, and supports the sustainability and expansion of local festivals and events that improve community quality of life.

The funding can be used to promote or market a festival or event, purchase materials or equipment to support the festival or event or offset administrative and operational expenses.

Applications are open now, and submissions will be reviewed on an ongoing basis with the first funding approvals announced early 2016.
