Emergency grants


Applications welcome anytime.

Funds are available to assist stations to replace damaged or destroyed essential equipment and related immediate expenses in order to restore basic transmission following an unforeseen event such as flood, bushfire, lightning or accidental damage (but not operator failure). Grants will be approved outside the normal grant rounds - you will receive advice about the success of your application within approximately two weeks, instead of the usual 10 weeks.

Application procedure

To apply you will need to use an online grant application system called SmartyGrants

Discuss your project with the relevant CBF Grants Administrator before submitting your application.
