Regional Arts Fund

Regional Arts Fund 2018

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.

The Australian Government's Regional Arts Fund is provided through Regional Arts Australia. In Victoria, the Regional Arts Fund is administered by Regional Arts Victoria according to the objectives and general eligibility determined by the Australian Government.

Regional Arts Victoria administers two funding programs within the Regional Arts Fund arts grants:

  • Community Grants Applications will open Monday 8 January 2018 and close at 5.00pm on Tuesday 13 March 2018 for projects starting after 1 July 2018. Please note that this will be the only round of Community Grants for 2018. Applicants who were intending to apply in August 2018 for projects starting after 1 January 2019 are encouraged to apply to this round.

  • Quick Response Grants The Regional Arts Fund Quick Response Grant Funding is currently closed and will reopen on Monday 8 January 2018.
