Grants of up to $5,000 for volunteer organisations
Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor is calling on local volunteer organisations to apply for grants of up to $5,000.
The Federal Government’s 2021 Volunteer Grants program is open once again, supporting volunteering in local communities.
“Volunteers play a critical role in our towns and villages. Sporting clubs, ex-service organisations, community committees, Landcare groups, charities, emergency services – they all survive on volunteer support,” Mr Taylor said.
Mr Taylor is strongly encouraging volunteer organisations to put their hand up for some financial help.
“Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 are available to not-for-profit community organisations to support their volunteers through practical measures like purchasing small equipment items or reimbursement for the cost of fuel, training and background checks.
Expressions of interest for this round of Volunteer Grants close at 5pm on Friday 16 April 2021.
A local committee of community representatives will assess all expressions of interest received and determine which groups will be invited to apply.
Successful groups will then be invited to submit a full application assessed by the Department of Social Services.
Expression of interest forms are available at the Goulburn and Camden Electorate Offices, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request one.
Further information, including detailed guidelines and eligibility criteria, is available on the Department of Social Services website: https://www.dss.gov.au/grants.
