MLA Bushfire Recovery Sponsorship

The bushfire recovery sponsorship program provides financial and in-kind support for industry events that increase awareness and adoption of information and resources that will support producers in bushfire affected areas.
Sponsorship Available

Sponsorship is available for up to $2500 per event.

Key Dates
Sponsorship is open for events held from January 27 2020 to June 30 2020

Sponsorship Criteria
To be considered for sponsorship, your event must meet the following criteria:

(a) Target producers with an aim of increasing awareness and adoption of resources that will support recovery from bush fire;
(b) Target producers in localities affected by bush fire;

(d) Supply a post-event summary which includes detail of meeting /event agenda, number of attendees and

Other Sponsorship Criteria
Given anticipated demand on the bush fire recovery sponsorship program, applicants may be offered a lesser amount than that requested in the application.

MLA recognises the valuable work of many community groups and organisations. However, our sponsorship program is unable to offer financial support to events such as cooking demonstrations, barbeque challenges, fundraising initiatives, youth camps, social functions and dinners.

Invoices are processed for payment at the completion of the event and on receipt of a Post-Event summary

MLA’s acceptance of the application and payment of the sponsorship amount is conditional upon the Event proceeding as planned and in accordance with the details provided in the application. Should the event be cancelled or altered in any way, MLA reserves its rights to review the sponsorship and the sponsorship amount in light of the changes.
