Huon Folk Inc Financial Position
Despite these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Huon Folk Inc is still in a strong financial position to host another festival in 2022.
The committee showed great foresight last year and cancelled the full 2021 festival early. As a result, Huon Folk Inc. received the maximum Jobkeeper available from the very beginning as well as other federal payments and grants.
However, due to the ongoing threat of the pandemic, we still face the possibility that the certain restrictions will apply to the 2022 festival. The committee needs to make plans in the event of a postponement, cancellation or restrictions and avail itself of possible government subsidies and grant opportunities to survive the pandemic.
