Application for Volunteers Grants NOW OPEN

The Australian Government is investing $10 million in Volunteer Grants in recognition of the hard work and many hours volunteers dedicate to not-for-profit organisations.

The 2016 Volunteer Grants Program provides funding to support, encourage and increase participation in volunteering in local communities.

Not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 to purchase equipment, including computers, tools, air conditioners and sporting items. The funding can also help to contribute towards travel costs incurred when carrying out voluntary work or training.

Important information on the program, including guidelines and application form, is available at www.dss.gov.au/grants or by calling the Community Grants Hub Hotline on 1800 020 283. Please do not hesitate to contact Jill Hutchison in my office for assistance on 9727 0799 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
