Content grants support the development, production and distribution of content via Australian community media.
Our guiding principles, approach and goals relating to content grants are outline in our Supporting Content Framework.
This year we are particularly looking to:
- increase community participation and diversity in community broadcasting and/or
- support creativity and excellence in content production.
Content grants are distributed twice per year, with the greater portion allocated in Round 1.
Content grants include funds specifically dedicated to Specialist Radio Programming. This portion of our content grants funding is available to support ongoing ethnic, Indigenous and RPH programs. For applicants looking to apply for Specialist Radio Programming funds, you must complete a separate grant application specifically requesting this funding.
Developing dynamic content enhances community media in Australia. Beyond their listening and viewing audiences, producers are often recognised for their achievements in awards. For inspiration of Content projects, view Our Stories.
