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.
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.
The maximum grant period for Quick Response Grants is one year.
Quick Response Grants are delivered each year from February to November and are batched for assessment at the end of each month. Projects must commence between 4 to 12 weeks after the date you submit your application.
You will be advised in writing of the outcome of your application no later than 5 business days from the date the round closes for Quick Response Grants (end of each month from February to November). Please refer to 2021 RAF Guidelines here for more information.
