Grants Advisory Committees

The voluntary involvement of experienced community broadcasters and industry experts is at the heart of how we operate.

The Foundation's structure enables peer group involvement in the grants process and development of funding policy through Grants Advisory Committees (GACs).

GACs are supported by a pool of assessors who assess applications and provide advice on grant applications. 

GAC members are appointed by the CBF Board to perform an independent advisory role in grants disbursement and the formulation of funding policy. 

Our Grants Advisory Committees are:

  • Development & Operations Grants Advisory Committee (DOGAC) provides an independent advisory role in grants disbursement and the formulation of funding policy.  It makes funding recommendations on Development & Operations grants.
  • Content Grants Advisory Committee (CGAC) provides an independent advisory role in grants disbursement and the formulation of funding policy.  It makes funding recommendations on Content grants.
