Culture Heritage Arts Regional Tourism (CHART) Program
the Culture, Heritage and Arts Regional Tourism (CHART) program is an Australian Government program that aims to support community cultural, heritage and arts organisations in regional Australia as they recover from the impacts of COVID-19.
The intended outcomes of CHART program grants are to:
- Contribute to the reactivation and recovery of organisations from COVID-19, and to their ongoing sustainability, by providing grants for eligible activities
- Promote regional arts tourism by supporting the development of appealing cultural tourism experiences, including through the preservation of Australia’s cultural heritage and the telling of the stories of local communities and
- Support domestic intra- and inter-state tourism and local economies more broadly.
Grants of up to $3,000 (plus GST where applicable) are available in the 2021-22 financial year to support organisations to reinvigorate the preservation and presentation of Australia’s cultural heritage. CHART grants only support new projects. Activities funded must be delivered by 30 April 2022.
The CHART program opens for applications in September 2021 and closes to applications in September/October, subject to the availability of funds. Funding will be administered in one open round. Applications will be assessed in batches of 100, through a rolling evaluation process. AMaGA encourages organisations to submit applications at the earliest opportunity.
