Lesbians Incorporated Community Grants Program

Status: Ongoing

Region: Australia wide

Details:

Lesbians Incorporated has established a Community Grants Program to give out $10,000 in grants (up to $1000 per grant) per round.

To be eligible for funding, projects must demonstrate that they:

  • meet an identified social, cultural, educational, health, welfare, recreational, personal development or legal need of the lesbian community;
  • target discrimination against lesbians and/or aim to improve the civil rights and/or status of lesbians within the general community;
  • aim to improve the access of lesbians to programs, services, activities and opportunities available to the general community;
  • aim to increase the vocational training and/or employment opportunities of lesbians.

Projects may aim to benefit the lesbian community in general or one or more groups within the lesbian community. Groups may be racial, cultural, geographic, or may have specific identified needs or shared interests and concerns. LInc considers the children of lesbians as part of the lesbian community.
