Region: Australia wide
Amount: $5,000 - $20,000
The Youth Action Project Grant Scheme (YAPGS), an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health and FYA, will respond to this hardship by providing grants between $5,000 and $20,000 (a total of up to $950K inc. GST) to projects that support young people (15-24 years) as they navigate and recover from this period.
YAPGS is open to both individuals and organisations with two kinds of projects to be supported – New projects that recognise and uniquely respond to the hardship young people are facing now and will face in the future, and Existing projects that provide a valuable on-going service to young people, which require additional funding to adapt or continue that work given the impact of the current environment.
The projects must support young people aged 15-24, not be commercial and should conclude by June 18 2021.
All projects supporting young people will be considered however, there will be a particular focus on employment, mental health, transportation, and the impacts of COVID-19 and the Australian Bushfires.
Applications close at 11:59 PM Wednesday 7 October. Find out more or apply.
