Projects and Resources
The CBF administers grants for special and sector-wide projects, usually as a result of the government introducing new policy initiatives.
The Australian Music Radio Airplay Project (AMRAP) is an initiative aimed at promoting Australian music. The project works with musicians and community broadcasters to create increased radio airplay opportunities for contemporary Australian music through the community radio sector.
The CBOnline sector project refers to several related information and communications technology (ICT)-based infrastructure projects including: the Digital Delivery Network (DDN), the National Listeners Survey (NLS), the National Community Broadcasting Station Census and a range of other ICT infrastructure activities.
Digital radio delivers enhanced audio quality and increased diversity of radio services and service features to Australian audiences. The community broadcasting sector wants to ensure community broadcasters are accorded sufficient capacity within the digital radio environment to be able to deliver existing audio services and develop new services and features.
Radio Nation is a resource for non-Indigenous stations interested in providing greater access and broadcasting opportunities to local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
