The Northern Midlands Council offers a variety of in-kind support and grant funding to events and not-for-profit community groups.
Not-for-profit community organisations are eligible to apply for funding towards the cost of major festivals, events or promotions being held in the Northern Midlands. Major events, festivals or promotions are defined as significant events that are the only one of their kind in the Northern Midlands in any one year, and attract significant numbers of people - generally in excess of 2,000 - and/or attract significant media coverage for the Northern Midlands. Assistance maybe 'in kind' or a grant - or a combination of the two methods.
