Grants: Be Connected Digital Device funding open to flood impacted older people

The Australian Government knows a lot of people have lost everything in the floods in New South Wales and Queensland, and the impacts are ongoing. Getting online will be critical to helping people recover, rebuild and reconnect.

In response the Digital Device Grant funding through the Be Connected program has been opened up to community organisations in flood impacted communities.

Successful applicants will receive $5,000 to purchase and distribute loan devices to older people who have been impacted by floods. Loan devices must include data and support for the recipient to confidently and safely use the device. Grant organisers have a number of support resources available to help you to do this including sample device loan agreements and how-to guides.

This opportunity is open now, closing on Friday, 29 April. Read the grant guidelines to understand eligibility criteria and grant requirements before applying.
