Supporting Content Framework

Each year the CBF provides over $3 million to support community radio and television content and related online activities. This content is as diverse as the audiences it engages. From amplifying the voices of marginalised people, providing a channel for independent opinions, to preserving language and celebrating place and identity.

For producers, our Content grants help them tell important stories using creativity and perspectives not covered by mainstream media outlets. Our grants also provide them with opportunities for skills development and career advancement. For audiences, the stories brought to life in community media entertain, inform and educate. They can also be life changing – enhancing health and wellbeing by creating connection.

And for stations, Content grants provide the opportunity to broadcast new compelling content ensuring audience retention and engagement and providing an attractive proposition for sponsors.

About our Supporting Content Framework

This framework is informed by consultation and reflects the principles outlined in the Community Radio Broadcasting Codes of Practice and the agreed community media sector vision as expressed through the Community Broadcasting Sector Compass (PDF, 627KB). Our Supporting Content Framework also aligns with our values to help us positively impact Australian society.
