The Bushfire Recovery round is open until 27 March with grants of up to $20,000 available for eligible events, and applications will be assessed as they are submitted. The general Regional Events Fund remains open to applications from across the state.



In addition to the Bushfire Recovery events support, the Labor Government is backing the regional tourism industry and local communities with a range of initiatives, including: Up to $2 million in marketing to be delivered by Visit Victoria to encourage travel in regional communities.
