Grants: Be Connected Building Digital Skills

Building Digital Skills grants help organisations to start up and continue delivering their Be Connected digital literacy programs.

The grant is available to new and existing organisations in the Be Connected Network, with six contract sizes available to apply for, depending on how many people you are willing to support and whether you have supported learners with a previous Be Connected grant before.

Use the Building Digital Skills grant funding on anything that will help you support older Australians complete 2 courses or 10 activities on the Be Connected Learning Portal.

Organisations who would like to apply for a Building Digital Skills grant must:

  • Be a Be Connected Network Partner. If you’re not already part of the Network, click here to join
  • Provide an ABN number.

Network Partners applying for their first Be Connected grant can only apply for a $2,500 grant. Once you have met 80% of your registration targets and acquitted your grant, you will be eligible to apply for larger Building Digital Skills grant contracts.
