Program Funding

The Program Funding category is closed for 2017 and 2018.

The ACT Government is reviewing its funding arrangements and support mechanisms to better align funding with the 2015 ACT Arts Policy. During this review, the Program Funding category will not be open for applications.

Enquiries about Program Funding should be directed to Anne Robinson, Program Manager, on (02) 6207 2378.


Program Funding is available to support arts organisations that provide a program of activity enabling the ACT community to have access to and engagement with the arts.

Organisations must have an established role in the ACT arts sector, be able to demonstrate a level of achievement in supporting, developing and advancing the arts and its audiences, and present a quality program that meets a demonstrated need.

Program Funding is available for up to two years.


Organisations must be ACT-based not-for-profit incorporated arts organisations. Program Funding supports organisations that provide an ongoing program of activity, not organisations offering a series of projects.
