'AgShows’ grant applications now open

                     

 Show societies in Durack are encouraged to apply for Australian Government Regional Agricultural Show Development Grants Program  (AgShows)  funding to upgrade, maintain, buy or build new showground infrastructure and attractions.

Member for Durack Melissa Price said applications were now open for the $20 million AgShows program.

“The government is delivering on an election commitment to boost regional agricultural shows.

Eligible local show societies and state and territory agricultural show peak bodies could receive grants of up to $500,000 under the AgShows program”, Ms Price said.

I would encourage local councils and showground owners to support the electorate’s regional agricultural show societies in their applications for grants.

The government’s $20 million AgShows investment will reinvigorate showgrounds, helping to boost regional communities, increase local employment and purchases from local businesses.

Grants could be used for repairs or upgrades of existing showground facilities such as outdoor seating, new infrastructure such as a grandstand, assets like portable sheep holding yards or attractions such as an agricultural virtual reality exhibit.

Applications are now open and close 13 December 2019, with successful applicants expected to be announced in the first half of 2020.
