The Regional Arts Fund (RAF) Community Project Program is assessed by the RAF Assessment Panel. All project proposals must meet all RAF program criteria. Only in special circumstances will RAF support the entire cost of a project. Proposals that identify support (both cash and in-kind) for projects from other funding sources or generate income will be viewed more favorably.
Assistance available for this category will be from a minimum of $5,000 up to a maximum of $30,000. It is anticipated that the majority of grants awarded in this category will be for short-term projects in the range of $15,000 - $30,000.
Applicants that were able to leverage other financial partners would be viewed positively.
View the Fund Guidelines to begin the application process. All applications are to be submitted using the appropriate Application Form.
Applications should show evidence of adequate planning. Projects that seek support (in cash and in-kind) from other sources and that generate income are encouraged. Such other support should be clearly identified.
Applications that are incomplete, unsigned, or not postmarked by the closing date, will not be eligible for consideration.
Assistance is available across all artforms for projects which promote excellence in regional arts development, improve access to the Arts for regional Queenslanders, recognise cultural diversity and raise the profile of the arts within regional communities.
All applications are assessed by an independent panel appointed by the Minister for Environment, Heritage and The Arts, the Hon Peter Garrett MP. The panel is drawn from the State's regional arts practitioners, artforms and regional arts organisations.
All grants must be acquitted within eight weeks of completion of the project on the appropriate Outcomes Report Form. The Outcomes Report Form must be completed and forwarded, with required support material to Queensland Arts Council.
