Through the Equestrian Queensland (EQ) Event Funding Program, funding is provided towards the cost of travel and/or accommodation for foreign and Australian based technical officials (such as judges, technical delegates, course designers and stewards) that are required under the rules to officiate at Queensland major events. The event will be highly considered if the event organiser provides educational and/or mentoring opportunities to current or new EQ officials.

There is also funding available through this program for new national events or showcase events.
