About Development & Operations Grants

Development & Operations grants aim to assist the ongoing development of community broadcasting throughout Australia. This grant category aims to maintain, expand and/or strengthen the operations and broadcast capabilities of community broadcasting stations through support for core operations, support for development projects and support for necessary infrastructure.

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

  • governance;
  • operations;
  • technical; and/or
  • community engagement.

Consideration of Development & Operations grants is the responsibility of the Development & Operations Grants Advisory Committee (DOGAC). You will receive early advice about the success of your application.
