Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor is pleased to once again invite hard working, local community groups to apply for a Volunteer Grant.
Mr Taylor said grants between $1,000 and $5,000 are available – to buy small equipment for volunteers, for reimbursing volunteer fuel, transport or training costs, or to support promotional activities.
“This program is always very popular in Hume,” Mr Taylor said.
“Volunteering plays such an important role in this region. It brings people together and makes our local communities better places to live.
“To be eligible under this round, applicants must be not-for-profit and have a minimum of 40% of volunteers working for the organisation.
“I strongly encourage all eligible groups to apply or to get in touch with my office if you have any questions.”
Expressions of interest close at 5pm on Friday, 1 September 2023.
Successful groups will then be invited to submit a full application assessed by the Department of Social Services.
Expression of interest forms are available for collection at the Goulburn and Camden Electorate Offices or can be found at https://www.angustaylor.com.au/content/2023-24-volunteer-grants-expression-interest-form
Further information, including detailed guidelines and eligibility criteria, is available on the Department of Social Services website.
