Funding to support community media

We’re very pleased that the Australian Government has continued its support of community broadcasting in last night’s Federal Budget with the commitment of a further $19,492,000 in funding support in 2018-19.

Australian Government funding support for community broadcasting is provided through the Community Broadcasting Program of the Department of Communications and the Arts (DOCA). We have been entrusted to distribute this funding since 1984 and look forward to helping community media organisations bring their stories to life.

This financial year, we have distributed $16.39m to support community media. To see how our support has made a difference, view our success stories.
