Volunteer Grants support the work of local community organisations by enabling the inclusion of vulnerable people and promoting awareness to increase participation in volunteering.
Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 are available to eligible not-for-profit community organisations to support a range of volunteer activities.
This funding can be used to:
- Purchase eligible small equipment items for use by volunteers
- Contribute to volunteers’ fuel costs
- Contribute to transport costs for volunteers with disability who are unable to drive
- Assist with the costs of training courses for volunteers
- Undertake background screening checks for volunteers
- Assist with changes to make volunteering safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to receive funding, grants must be used for activities that:
- Help community organisations to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers
- Help community organisations to support the inclusion of vulnerable people through volunteering
- Encourage, support and increase participation in volunteering
To receive a grant, at least 40% of an organisation’s staff must be volunteers.
How can I apply?
Federal Members of Parliament (MPs) will consult their local community and seek Expressions of Interest from eligible organisations.
MPs will establish a community committee or consult with an existing committee to assist them in identifying potential projects and organisations that strengthen community functioning by increasing participation in volunteering. MPs will then nominate endorsed projects/organisations including the level of funding to be applied for in accordance with recommendations from the committee.
Please contact your local MP or check their website for more information on how to submit an Expression of Interest and what date submissions close.
