Development & Operations grants

Development & Operations grants aim to support community media station resilience through core support and support for development projects and necessary infrastructure.

This year we are particularly looking to support initiatives that build the capacity of community broadcasting stations in the areas of:

  • Governance / strategic planning development
  • Operations
  • Technical and/or
  • Community engagement

Grants for Development & Operations are distributed twice per year, with the greater portion allocated in Round 1.
