Volunteer Grants provide funding opportunities to eligible organisations whose volunteers are actively working in the community. Eligible non-profit organisations are invited to apply for funding ranging between $1,000 and $5,000 to support the work of their volunteers. The funding will enable organisations to purchase small practical and tangible equipment items and contribute towards the cost of training, background checks and fuel costs associated with their volunteering activities.
The Volunteering Grants 2010 Application form, Application Guidelines and further information is available at www.fahcsia.gov.au Organisations are encouraged to read the Guidelines then complete and submit the electronic application online.
Applications close Friday 16 April 2010 at 2.00p.m. AEST. Any questions should be directed to the Volunteer Grants 2010 toll-free hotline at 1800 183 374. A TTY service for people who have a hearing or speech impairment is available on 1800 555 677.
