Transfer of responsibility of the Indigenous Broadcasting Program
Following the Australian Government’s consideration of the report on the review of its investment in the Indigenous broadcasting and media sector, a joint media statement on 6 April 2011 announced that the government has agreed to the recommendation that responsibility for the Indigenous Broadcasting Program (IBP) would transfer from the Ministry for the Arts to the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy. The transfer took effect on 1 July 2011.
As part of the administrative arrangements for the IBP to maintain the continuity of program administration, 2012-13 IBP applications will be administered by Ministry for the Arts staff in the National Network.
The 2012-13 IBP funding round is now open. For more information about the IBP and how to apply see the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy’s website.
