RADF Grants

​​​Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF)

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a flexible grant fund that invests in local arts and cultural priorities, as determined by local communities across Queensland.  Council's RADF program promotes the role and value of arts, culture and heritage as key drivers of diverse and inclusive communities​ and strong regions.  

How RADF operates in the Lockyer Valley

Council's RADF Liaison Officer manages the local program in partners with the RADF Committee.  

Up to two funding rounds are offered each financial year.  These rounds are advertised through local and social media. 

Individuals and community groups interested in arts and culture in the Lockyer Valley are invited to make an application for funding under the Lockyer Valley Regional Council (LVRC) Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Grant Program.

All RADF applications are assessed by the RADF committee which is made up of community members and two Councillors. The committee considers the applications against the Program Priorities and Key Performance Outcomes and presents their recommendations to Council for approval.  

You can access the current RADF Guidelines ​here.
