Volunteer grants for 151 federal electorates

The Commonwealth Government is encouraging applicants for community grants of up to $5,000 as part of its $10m 2019-20 Volunteer Grants scheme.

The Department of Social Services’ funding is to be shared across 151 federal electorates for community organisations to buy small equipment for volunteers, or reimburse fuel, transport or training costs.

Local Federal Members of Parliament must nominate organisations before 28 January 2020. Successful applicants will be announced in May 2020.
