The Australian Government will soon be inviting organisations via a closed non-competitive process to apply for a Volunteer Grant under the Families and Communities Program – Volunteer Grants Activity in 2021.
Volunteer Grants aim to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers as well as to encourage and increase participation in volunteering. The grants provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers.
The objectives of Volunteer Grants are to:
1. help community organisations to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers
2. help community organisations to support the inclusion of vulnerable people through volunteering
3. encourage, support and increase participation in volunteering.
The intended outcome of the program is to strengthen community functioning by increasing participation in volunteering.
Please contact the office of Justine Elliot MP for more information and to obtain a EOI form.
The forms should be returned to: Justine.email@example.com by 21st April 2021.
Organisations MUST have an ABN and be not-for-profit.
They must be made up of at least 40% volunteers.
The grant available is $1000 – $5000
