Funded projects stimulate creative activity for regional audiences, and creative development for regional artists. We offer dedicated, high-quality support to grant applicants through our Creative Arts Facilitators as well as our central staff.

Regional Arts Victoria offers a number of funding opportunities for artists, arts organisations and presenters of arts projects throughout the state. These include:


The Regional Arts Fund

The Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund program supports sustainable cultural development in regional and remote Australia. The Regional Arts Fund is managed in Victoria by Regional Arts Victoria and is delivered in two main categories, Community Grants and Quick Response Grants.

Community Grants 

Community Grants of up to $15,000 are available for projects that involve regional artists, have a public outcome and significantly engage the community in which the project is based. Community Grants are available in two rounds per year.

Quick Response Grants

Quick Response grants of up to $1500 for individuals and $3,000 for organisations are available throughout the year.
