My office is now accepting Expressions of Interest for the 2022-23 Volunteer Grants.
What do you get?
Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 are available to eligible not-for-profit community organisations.
This funding can be used for purposes such as:

The Volunteer Grants Activity is an element of the Families and Communities Program, which aims to strengthen relationships, support families, improve wellbeing of children and young people, reduce the cost of family breakdown and strengthen family and community functioning.
The objectives of Volunteer Grants are to:
