Volunteers and their organisations across Leichhardt will receive part of the Australian Government’s $10 million Volunteer Grants to support the crucial role that they play within our community.
The 2022 Volunteer Grants provide organisations with grants of between $1000 to $5000 to help organisations buy small equipment for volunteers or reimbursing volunteer fuel, transport or training costs, or support promotional activities.
Volunteering plays an important role in Australia’s social landscape as a proven pathway to get people into jobs, reduce marginalisation and increase community participation
Federal Leichhardt MP Warren Entsch today announced $66,225 in funding available for community organisations.
“Community organisations can only assist off the backbone of dedicated volunteers, and I am proud to be a part of an electorate who has many, many of these residents.”
“I encourage groups to apply and to contact my office if you have any questions at all.”
Interested organisations can complete the Expression of Interest form here.
Expressions of Interest forms must be submitted before close of business on Friday, 16th September 2022
All Expressions of Interest will then be considered by a local independent community consultation panel.
Mr Entsch, after consultation with the independent panel, will notify the successful organisations via email.
The Department of Social Services will then send an official application form to nominated organisations to apply for funding.
Successful applicants will be announced in May 2023
