Volunteer Grants 2018
I am writing to let you know that the Volunteer Grants programme will be opening soon.
The Coalition Government is investing $20 million in Volunteer Grants to support, encourage and increase participation in volunteering in local communities.
Grants between $1,000 and $5,000 are available to help not-for-profit community organisations or groups in Deakin to support their volunteers through practical measures including, the purchase of small equipment items, reimbursement for volunteers’ fuel and transport costs, and contributions towards the cost of training and background screening checks.
The Volunteer Grants programme opens in August and will provide a valuable opportunity for your organisation to support its volunteers.
I’m encouraging all not-for-profit organisations in Deakin to apply for the upcoming round of Volunteer Grants.
If you intend on applying or for more information, please contact my office on 03 9874 1711 or email me at Michael.Sukkar.MP@aph.gov.au.
You can also visit the Department of Social Services’ Community Grants Hub website to subscribe to updates on the application process.
