About Sector Investment grants - Enhanced National News Programming

Sector Investment grants strengthen and develop Australian community media.

This funding will enhance community broadcasting national news production and distribution. It will expand the capacity of the community broadcasting sector to meet the Community Broadcasting Codes of Practice to:

  • provide access to views not adequately represented by other broadcasting sectors;
  • present factual material accurately’
  • represent viewpoints fairly without editing out context or withholding relevant and available material;
  • clearly distinguish factual material from commentary and analysis.

Consideration of Sector Investment grants is the responsibility of the Sector Investment Advisory Committee. Successful Expressions of Interest will be invited to submit a more thorough application in July 2018.
