Grants and Funding

All 2018 programs have new program guides with updated information.

You are strongly encouraged to read your program handbook (which you can download from the relevant page on the left) and the First Time Applicant Handbook

Check the Key Dates Calendar to find out when you need to submit your application or if you're applying to the U-15k category use the Business Day Calculator.

PLEASE NOTE: Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and WAM are working together to support WA artists to attend BIGSOUND  in 2018.  If you're attending BIGSOUND and want to know more, please contact WAM (West Australian Music).   Because of this additional support, BIGSOUND applications will not be accepted through our normal funding rounds.

The next planned closure of the online grants system will be 20 December 2018 – 7 January 2019.
