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
- encourage, support and increase participation in volunteering.
The intended outcome of the program is to strengthen community functioning by increasing participation in volunteering.
More information about the Volunteer Grants Activity – 2019-20 Volunteer Grants, as well as requirements for applicants can be found in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines and Questions and Answers for Applicants.
The department will email an application form to organisations who have been nominated by their Local Member of Parliament.
