We are now accepting Expressions of Interest for the 2019-20 selection round of Volunteer Grants.

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: 

  • help community organisations to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers;
  • help community organisations to support the inclusion of vulnerable people through volunteering; and
  • encourage, support and increase participation in volunteering.

The intended outcome of the program is to strengthen community functioning by increasing participation in volunteering.

Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 are available to help community organisations buy equipment such as laptops, pay fuel costs, or assist with volunteer training costs.

More information about this grant opportunity is available on the Community Grants Hub website.

Before submitting an Expression of Interest, please ensure you have read and understand the Grant Opportunity Guidelines. Please also ensure that your organisation is located within the Division of Corangamite by checking the electorate map.

Expressions of Interest will be assessed by Libby Coker, who will then make recommendations to the Commonwealth Department of Social Services.

Expressions of Interest are open until midday on Friday, 31 January 2020.
