I am pleased to advise that Volunteer Grants for 2016 are now open for applications.
The Australian Government is investing $10 million in Volunteer Grants 2016 to support, encourage and increase participation in volunteering in local communities. These grants help community organisations support their volunteers by making their volunteering work easier, safer and more enjoyable.
Applications for Volunteer Grants 2016 close at 1pm Tuesday, 20 December 2016.
Grants between $1,000 and $5,000 are available for not-for-profit community organisations to support their volunteers through practical measures such as the purchase of small equipment items or reimbursement for the cost of fuel, training and background checks.
Further information about Volunteer Grants 2016, including the Application Pack, is available of the Department of Social Services website here.
