A message to Queensland show societies

The Queensland Government remains committed to keeping Queensland’s communities informed and advised on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Department of Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs acknowledges the economic impact COVID-19 is having on communities, small businesses and events across the country.

As a result, the department is working closely with the Queensland Chamber of Agricultural Societies to support and address concerns regarding the 2019–20 Show Societies Grants Program (SSGP).

Show societies who have already expended their 2019-20 SSGP allocation towards the running of their show are able to acquit their grant providing the funds are expended against eligible costs identified in the 2019-20 SSGP guidelines at www.dlgrma.qld.gov.au/resources/guideline/local-government/2019-20-ssgp-guidelines.pdf

Show societies who reschedule their show and have not yet expended their 2019-20 SSGP allocation are required to email the Department requesting an extension of time to expend the funds towards the rescheduled show by emailing [email protected]

For show societies that have held their show and are yet to acquit their 2019-20 SSGP allocation, the department will be in contact regarding the acquittal process.

It is important that all Queenslanders continue to visit the Queensland Health website for the most up-to-date-information.
