Last year a couple of User Groups applied for grants under the Volunteer Grants Program and received funds to purchase projectors and other equipment for their groups…

Through this program, volunteer organisations can apply for grants to help with the price of fuel and equipment. It is anticipated that around 6000 community organisations will benefit from this grant.

The Volunteer Grants Program, which is provided by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA), provides funding of between $1000 and $5000 to help not-for-profit organisations to:

  • buy tangible, small equipment items to help volunteers, and/or
  • cover costs such as club sporting equipment and uniforms, training of volunteer sports coaches, and travel for specific sports-related purposes, and/or
  • contribute towards fuel reimbursement for their volunteers.

I encourage all User Groups to investigate this great funding opportunity. Just be sure to apply before Friday October 17, 2008 😉
