How much funding can an organisation apply for?

Applications can be submitted for funding of between $100 and $10,000. If the cost of items requested or purchased is more than the approved amount, it is the organisation’s responsibility to fund the difference.

Additional funding

A funding pool of up to $300,000 per year will be made available to support programs or projects assessed as highly effective in achieving outcomes. Identified programs or services will be eligible to receive further funding for up to 12 months, to a maximum of three years in total.

Organisations will need to demonstrate the effectiveness of the program or project through data and commentary, along with how they will direct the additional funding over the following 12 months.

Applications will need to score over 75% when assessed to be considered for additional funding.

Organisations funded for a program or project will be contacted approximately six months prior to the end of their contract and invited to apply for an additional period of up to 12 months of funding of up to $100,000.
