    Volunteer Grants 2016
    The Australian Government is inviting organisations to apply for Volunteer Grants 2016.

    Funding is expected to be offered to around 2,600 organisations as a result of this process, with grants to be paid by 30 June 2017.

    Volunteer Grants enable small community/not-for-profit organisations to apply for grants of up to $5,000 to purchase small equipment items to assist their volunteers, assist with the reimbursement of fuel costs incurred by volunteers (and transport costs for volunteers with disability who are unable to drive), and contribute towards the cost of training courses and background screening checks for volunteers.

    Applications close at 2:00pm AEDT on 20 December 2016.

    For further information about eligibility and how to apply, refer to the Funding Open for Application page.
