Orange City Council has called on community groups to put their hand up for a share of about $180,000 worth of financial assistance.
Groups can apply for assistance several ways, including a rate reimbursement, event sponsorship, hire fee reduction or a direct financial grant.
Examples of previous grants include funding for hosting exchange students, placing advertising banners in the main street at no cost to the organiser, event sponsorship and competition prize giving.
Applicants will be asked to identify the benefit the event or project will have for Orange.
For certain grants, applicants will be asked to identify which businesses their projects will use - so council can track the impact of the program.
Orange Mayor Reg Kidd said just because a group has received help in the past doesn't mean the support will happen again automatically.
"Groups need to reapply to let us know that help is still needed," he said.
"We'd love to help everyone with every request but the reality is, we only have a certain amount we can donate. It is important groups fill in their applications soon so they have the best chance of getting over the line."
Information about which grants are available, how often applications are sought and how to apply can be found on Orange City Council's website.
The deadline for applications is June 7, at 5pm.
