Music grants

Get funding for your projects or organisations that broadly benefit many Aotearoa songwriters and composers.

What we don't fund

Individuals or bands looking to write, record or tour

Check out our Professional Development Awards if you’re looking for funding to support your personal development. It’s also worth investigating funding opportunities for individual and band projects via our Industry grants and funding page.

Recording projects

As an organisation focused on the creation of music, we prefer to invest in projects that emphasise the songwriting or composition process of a song, rather than the recording aspect. Our colleagues at Recorded Music New Zealand have Music Grants that relate to recording.

Commissioning of new works

Funding for the composition of commissioned works available through the Art Music Fund.
