Regional Arts Fund – Project Grants
Provide major funding for high-quality arts projects benefitting regional or remote artists, arts workers, audiences and communities.
Funding high-quality arts projects benefitting regional or remote artists, arts workers, audiences and communities.
Assessors will make decisions around funding allocated to successful applicants, taking into consideration the quantum of funds available in the individual state/territory. You are strongly encouraged to speak with a Regional Program Administrator Program Officer, especially if you are applying for grants greater than $20,000 as a large funding request may be unrealistic where the available funds are limited.
In exceptional circumstances, you may be permitted to apply for larger grants. You should keep in mind that the Regional Arts Fund supports a diverse range of high-quality projects that deliver outcomes in regional areas. To remain competitive, all applications for funding must include realistic budgets and represent value with money. Funding applications are assessed against other applications on a competitive basis.
Funding is available through annual or multi-year agreements, subject to available funds. Multi-year funding is only available to support the development and delivery of a single project across financial years (to a maximum of $30,000 per year). Applicants seeking multi-year funding will be required to provide a strongly argued business case demonstrating the need for, and benefits of, multi-year support and additional budget information.
