The Australian Government is inviting organisations and individuals representing volunteer based community groups to apply for Volunteer Grants 2016 funding.
These grants aim to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers who help disadvantaged Australian communities and encourage inclusion of vulnerable people in community life. They provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers.
The funding will help volunteers to do their important work, and the grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 each will allow organisations to buy much needed equipment, such as computers, or help with training volunteers, fuel costs or undertaking background security checks.
Applications close at 2:00pm AEDT Tuesday, 20 December 2016.
For further information about eligibility and how to apply, refer to the Funding Open for Application page.
