Community Broadcasting Foundation Keeps Up COVID Funding

Australia’s Community Broadcasting Foundation has announced that more than 100 community broadcasting organisations across the country received a share of over AUD$1 million in its latest COVID-19 Crisis Grant round.

Established in March this year, the COVID-19 Crisis Grant makes a small contribution to help support community stations through the pandemic.

Instead of running its usual Content and Development & Operations grants in September, the CBF decided to repurpose this funding and run a second COVID-19 Crisis Grant round.

According to the CBF, “We believed this was the best way to help the greatest number of stations stay open and operating during the pandemic. And we knew from the first Crisis Grant round that the need across the community broadcasting sector was significant and pressing.”

The funding allocated in this round included specific funding allocations for community radio stations with ethnic, RPH (Radio Print Handicapped) and Indigenous programming.


The CBF’s next Content and Development & Operations grant rounds are opening on Monday 11 January.
