Federal Government’s ever-popular Volunteer Grants program has reopened

Small community organisations can now apply for grants of up to $5,000 to purchase small equipment to assist their volunteers, reimburse fuel and transport costs for volunteers, and contribute towards the cost of training courses and background screening checks for volunteers.

Applications are open until 2pm on Wednesday, December 9, 2015, with grants expected to be paid by 30 June 2016.
