Local Volunteer Grants

Local Volunteer Grants  Main Image

The 2021 Local Volunteer Grants round is now open to Expressions of Interest (EOI) from local groups across the federal electorate of Lilley.

Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 are available to eligible not-for-profit community organisations to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers.

For example, through the purchase of small equipment to be used by volunteers or for the reimbursement of volunteer fuel, transport or training costs, or for promoting awareness and increasing participation in volunteering.

To be eligible to apply for a grant, a community organisation must:

  • be a legal entity 
  • be an Australian not-for-profit organisation
  • utilise volunteers, with volunteers making up at least 40 per cent of the organisation’s staff
  • have an ABN (or provide a Statement by Supplier Form)

The deadline for Expressions of Interest is Friday April 16 at 5pm (AEST).

After all expressions of interest have been finalised, the Lilley community consultation panel will nominate a priority list of eligible organisations.

More information on the guidelines can be found here.
