Regional Arts Fund Boost Program - Recovery

The Recovery Boost is a $10 million targeted measure announced by the Australian Government in 2020 as part of the Relief and Recovery Fund. It responds to the difficulties experienced by regional artists, arts organisations and communities who have been heavily impacted by COVID-19, bushfires, floods and drought. The Recovery Boost is one-off funding and will be delivered through the Regional Arts Fund and seeks to offer short (Relief), medium (Recovery) and long-term (Renewal) support.

Recovery grants are designed to meet the medium-term recovery needs of artists, organisations and communities. Projects in this program should focus on activities that assist in recovery from the impacts of COVID-19.

Project activities could include creative recovery projects, training programs, operational recovery plans, asset purchase or replacement (up to $5000) and the development of risk plans and emergency operating procedures and responses.

The Regional Arts Fund (RAF) Recovery Program will operate as a competitive funding round.

Projects must commence from 1 Jan 2021 and be completed by 30 June 2024

How much can I apply for?
Up to $40,000 over 2 years

Individuals, groups and incorporated not-for-profit organisations based in Regional SA.
