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.
