Specialist Radio Programming grant

Stations producing content that meets the needs of particular communities may be eligible for dedicated Specialist Radio Programming Content grants. This funding is intended to encourage stations to incorporate:

  • RPH programs to serve people with a print disability
  • Ethnic programs to serve a defined local ethnic community
  • Indigenous programs.

These grants are distributed twice per year, with the greater portion allocated in Round 1.

How to apply

Our grant guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions detail everything you need to know about Specialist Radio Programming grants, including the need for stations to consult with broadcasters.

For stations consulting with multiple ethnic broadcasters, we’ve prepared a Specialist Content Workbook to help you (special thanks to Behrooz Farahnakian from 4EB who created the original version).

When you are ready, you need to submit your application online. But before you start your application, please review our grant guidelines and preview the application form.

Also, remember our Grants Support Team is always happy to provide tips and advice about your application.
