Expressions of Interest open — 2021 Volunteer Grants

The Australian Government is inviting organisations via a restricted non-competitive process to apply for a Volunteer Grant under the Families and Communities Program – Volunteer Grants Activity in 2021. 

Volunteer Grants form part of the government’s work to support volunteers, as well as to encourage and increase participation in volunteering. The grants provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers.

The 2021 Volunteer Grants round begins with a call for Expressions of Interest, with your local Member of Parliament (MP) using a community committee to develop a list of organisations to nominate. Following the Expression of Interest process, the MPs will nominate organisations from their lists. The nomination period closes at 2:00 PM AEST 29 April 2021.

Only organisations nominated by their MP will receive an invitation to apply for the 2021 Volunteer Grants. 

Information about this grant opportunity can be found on the Community Grants Hub website andGrantConnect.
