Grants ranging from £5,000 to £50,000 are available. The programme can contribute a maximum of 70% of the necessary costs.

Eligible project costs include:
- Marketing costs (including advertising and PR).
- Tour support or venue costs including international travel.
- Visa costs.
- International promotion costs including hire of session musicians/ singers etc for television performances.
Expenditure to be taken into account will be external costs to the label or management, not normal running costs.
