The Show Societies Grants Program (SSGP) is an annual allocation-based funding program of $2 million supporting Show Societies and affiliated organisations throughout Queensland to conduct annual agricultural shows. In addition to the annual allocation, $400,000 in grant funding will be provided to Show Societies over the next three years (2018–19 to 2020–21).
The SSGP provides financial support for operating costs associated with conducting annual agricultural shows, and costs towards the construction and maintenance of showground assets. Show Societies who own their grounds may use up to 50 per cent of their funding towards new infrastructure that meets the required timeframe and program objectives. The current funding allocation is for the period 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019.
