Scripted and Factual funding
Before you apply
Before you apply for funding you need to know what we can fund, how we choose to invest, what you'll need to include in your application and how we'll assess your application.
If you’ve applied for funding before, or are already registered and have read our application guidelines, you can go straight to our online funding application portal.
We provide operating funding to a number of targeted platforms and services that provide important public media content. These include access, Pacific and student radio, disability access services, and content discovery hubs.
This is a closed fund with only one round per year.
From time to time we will have Requests For Proposals that are separate from our normal Scripted & Factual, and Music funding rounds. See all RFPs here.
