The Australian Communications and Media Authority’s (ACMA) Regional and Small Publishers Innovation Fund has been established by the Australian Government to support regional and small publishers to transition to and compete more successfully in the evolving media environment. The Innovation Fund will preserve and improve the viability of Australia’s regional and small news publishing industry in the current period of transition.

The Regional Grant Opportunity (the Opportunity) is a new grant opportunity under the Innovation Fund that is targeted at regional publishers of public interest journalism.

The objective of the Opportunity is to provide regional publishers with the financial security to conduct their business in the medium term so that they can take calculated risks to reorient their business models to adapt to the digital age.
