Regional Arts Fund – Quick Response Grants

Quick Response Grants will fund professional development opportunities for artists and arts workers or small project opportunities. The program supports immediate need that arises where the activity is unable to be planned for or supported in other funding rounds, for example taking up professional development, skills development or small project opportunities at short notice.

The Regional Arts Fund is managed in Tasmania by RANT Arts and applications are only accepted from Tasmanian artists/ arts workers or organisations.

You can apply for Quick Response Grants up to $3,000 for individuals and $5,000 for organisations. There is no minimum grant amount. Funding applications are assessed against other applications on a competitive basis. To remain competitive, all applications for funding must include realistic budgets and represent value with money. To be considered for funding for the QRG’s an applicant must demonstrate that there is no other funding program for which the proposal is eligible either by its nature or its timing.

The Quick Response Grant program is open 10 times each year during the following months: February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October and November. Applications submitted by 11:59pm on the last day of each month.
