We know it can be tough keeping body and soul together in small collecting organisations and history groups. Knowing where to look for grants and funding is half the battle, so we’ve put a few together here to get you started.
AMaGA CHART grants
$3000 up for grabs
This is another reminder that the one-off federal Cultural, Heritage and Arts Regional Tourism (CHART) grants have just become available. Your organisation may be eligible for up to $3000. Check the details below regarding eligibility and how to apply. But don’t delay: the round will close on or before 29 April 2022 once the funding allocation has been expended.
The Culture, Heritage and Arts Regional Tourism (CHART) program is a $3 million Australian Government program that aims to support community cultural, heritage and arts organisations in regional Australia as they recover from the impacts of COVID-19. A wide range of projects are eligible for funding including signage and equipment.
The Australian Museums and Galleries Association (AMaGA) is administering the CHART program on behalf of the Australian Government.
