About Content Grants

Content grants aim to support the development, production and distribution of original content via Australian community radio and/or television broadcasters and associated platforms.

Original content is content that has never been broadcast before. This can include new episodes of existing programs.

This year we are particularly looking to:

  • increase community participation and diversity in community broadcasting and/or
  • support high quality and creative content production

Consideration of Content grants is the responsibility of the Content Grants Advisory Committee (CGAC). You will receive early advice about the success of your application.

To complete requests for support for Specialist Radio Programming within your Content grant application, you will need to provide:

  • the details of a consultation meeting with the specialist programming group/s
  • a Summary of Programs form as emailed to the station, or downloaded here.
