The Australian Government has announced a $125 million extension of the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund, available until 31 December 2021. Funding is now available to support a broader cross section of music and entertainment sector workers such as managers, booking agents, musicians, and roadies.
RISE funding is provided to businesses and organisations as competitive project grants towards the cost of putting on activities such as festivals, concerts, tours, productions and events.
FAA encourages folk organisations and artists to apply for funding support.
