Here are a large number of grants and other funding opportunities available to artists and organisations in regional NSW. Regional Arts NSW has developed a grants calendar which list grants according to funding body or closing date.

How to apply for funding

To get you started, Arts North West has created a useful resource Funding Booklet. RANSW has produced a Guide to Writing Grant Applications to assist not-for-profit community based organisations in preparing effective submissions for funding from these programs.  Arts North West is happy to review any funding application.  Call us on 0428 042 622 or email to make a time to discuss.


If you or your group are seeking funding, and require an organisation to auspice your grant, please consider the information in the following auspicing policy and the FAQs. 

If the conditions specified in the Arts North West auspicing policy suit your needs, then you should complete the auspicing agreement and submit it to Arts North West for consideration.
