For 13 years, Youngcare has been fighting to make a difference to the lives of young people with high care needs and their loved ones who care for them. However, there are still too many young Australians being left behind in, or facing the prospect of inappropriate housing.
As you may have constituents in your electorate with high care needs at risk of entering inappropriate housing, I would like to take this opportunity to bring this round of funding to your attention and to invite you to forward this information on to interested families and their service providers.
Applications for Youngcare's At Home Care Grants in Queensland and Northern Territory are closing at 4pm on Wednesday, 12 September 2018!
This grant round has the largest amount of funding we've EVER had, so there is an enormous opportunity to take advantage of. The grants provide one-off funding of up to $10,000 for essential equipment, home modifications and support/respite to enhance the quality of life for young people with high care needs and their carers.
Should you have any questions about the grants, please contact our Youngcare Connect team on 1800 844 727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This grant provides organisations with grants of between $1,000 to $20,000 to sponsor eligible students to participate in conferences, competitions and other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) related events.
Who can apply:
At a minimum, you must have an ABN and be one of the following:
a primary or secondary school, registered with a state or territory authority
an incorporated not for profit organisation
an entity incorporated in Australia.
Other eligibility requirements apply.
Do you work for or volunteer at a local council, community group, non-government organisation or P&C Association? Are you planning a multicultural event for 2019?
If you answered ‘yes’ to both then your organisation might be eligible to apply for an event grant under the 2018-19 Celebrating Multicultural Queensland (CMQ) program.
The CMQ program promotes multiculturalism and supports communities to celebrate diversity and connect and welcome migrants and refugees into a wide range of community activities.
A total of $1.4 million is available for established and new events, with funding of up to $20,000 available per event.
Funding is for multicultural events being held in 2019 that aim to:
- Welcome migrants and refugees into communities, and to increase their sense of belonging
- Promote an increased understanding and acceptance of a particular, or an emerging culture across the wider community
- Celebrate, promote and increase opportunities for intercultural connections within local communities and across Queensland.
APPLICATIONS CLOSE ON FRIDAY 14 SEPTEMBER 2018.
What could your community group do with $20,000?
The Stronger Communities Programme asks Members of Parliament to engage with their communities to recommend capital investment projects that strengthen their communities.
Up to $150,000 of funding will be available in Griffith for small capital projects which improve community participation and contribute to the vibrancy and viability of local communities.Read more
