There is a wide spectrum of grants and subsidies for music artists of various contemporary genres in Austria, ranging from composition stipends to sound recording production and travel allowances. Apart from the state sector, there are a number of other institutions, such as the social and cultural institutions of the collecting societies, or the Austrian Music Fund.

The promotion of music by the FM of the Arts is, in fact, governed by the Law on the Promotion of the Arts, which focuses on contemporary forms of art which affects all the states of Austria with the exception of Vienna which has its own regulatory cultural subsidation ruling (Kulturförderungsgesetze)8.
