About Content Grants

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.

Our grant guidelines and our Frequently Asked Questions detail everything you need to know about Content grants. Please review these guidelines and preview the application form before starting your application. Also, remember members of our friendly Grants Support Team are here to provide tips and advice about your application.
