Community media organisations across Australia received a share of over $10.8 million in the first grants round for 2022/23.
The funding supports hundreds of inspiring projects that ensure community stories, information and entertainment are heard by millions of people across the country.
Projects range from new podcasts, films and radio shows that reflect the diversity of the community to technical infrastructure projects that ensure audiences can access their favourite content seamlessly from anywhere to sector-wide initiatives that are helping build a strong and resilient future for community media.
Community Broadcasting Foundation CEO, Jo Curtin (pictured), says, “ We love hearing about all the incredible things people are doing around the country. We can’t wait to see the impact these projects will have in communities with our funding support.
“Thanks to Michelle Rowland MP and the Australian Government for the continued and critical support of community broadcasting, provided via the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications.”
