Expressions of Interest are now open for the Australian Government's Volunteer Grants program.
Volunteer Grants support the work of local community organisations by enabling the inclusion of vulnerable people and promoting awareness to increase participation in volunteering.
Many community organisations have found that the coronavirus pandemic has significantly affected their access to volunteers. This grant opportunity will help organisations reinvigorate volunteering in their communities by promoting the benefits and opportunities within their organisations.
Organisations must first submit an expression of interest for their proposed project by 19 April 2021. Successful organisations will later be invited to submit their project funding application.
Before submitting an expression of interest, please ensure that your organisation and proposed project are eligible for funding by reading the eligibility criteria. Some of the key criteria are:
- be a legal entity;
- have a minimum of 40% of volunteers working for your organisation;
- be a not-for-profit organisation;
- and have an Australian Business Number.
If you have any questions about this grant opportunity, please contact the electorate office by calling 03 5261 7683 or sending an email to [email protected]Share Tweet
