The Regional Arts Development FundOfficial RADF logo

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Noosa Shire Council to support the development of local arts and culture. It supports local arts and cultural development opportunities by providing one-off, short-term, project-based financial assistance to groups and individuals in regional Queensland.

A revised Noosa Council Community Grants Policy [95KB] was adopted at the 15 December 2016 Ordinary Council Meeting.
