Youth Action Project Grant Scheme

The Youth Action Project Grant Scheme (YAPGS), an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health and FYA, will respond to this hardship by providing grants between $5,000 and $20,000 (a total of up to $950K inc. GST) to projects that support young people (15-24 years) as they navigate and recover from this period.

YAPGS is open to both individuals and organisations with two kinds of projects to be supported – New projects that recognise and uniquely respond to the hardship young people are facing now and will face in the future, and Existing projects that provide a valuable on-going service to young people, which require additional funding to adapt or continue that work given the impact of the current environment.

The projects must support young people aged 15-24, not be commercial and should conclude by June 18 2021.

All projects supporting young people will be considered however, there will be a particular focus on employment, mental health, transportation, and the impacts of COVID-19 and the Australian Bushfires.

Applications close at 11:59 PM Wednesday 7 October. Find out more or apply.
