The Regional Cultural Fund was established by the NSW Government to support the development of cultural infrastructure in regional NSW that enables bold, exciting and diverse arts and cultural activities.

Through the investment of $100 million, the Regional Cultural Fund aims to strengthen regional arts, screen, culture and heritage, and revitalise local communities through strategic investment.

Since Round One closed on 3 April 2018, $48 million has been shared across 68 projects in nine regions of NSW.
