The Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund supports sustainable cultural development in regional and remote Australia. The Fund meets the strategic priorities of supporting participation in and access to the arts and encouraging greater private sector support for the arts. There are two Community Grant rounds per year and Quick Response Grants available throughout the year for exceptional opportunities for artists and their communities.

Project and Skills Development Grants (amounts up to $15,000) are for projects involving regional artists that have a public outcome, and significantly engage the community in which it is based. They can also be used for skills development opportunities for regional artists, arts groups or community organisations.

Toe in the Water (amounts up to $6,000) are available for small cultural projects involving regionally based artists and projects that have significant involvement with the community. This category is only available to applicants who have not previously received funding through the Regional Arts Fund. Previous successful applicants of both Community Grants and/or Quick Response Grants are unable to apply for a Toe in the Water grant.
