These grants can be used to buy small equipment for volunteers or for the reimbursement of volunteer fuel, transport, and training costs.  Eligible not-for-profit community organisations can apply for funding between $1,000 and $5,000. 

The Volunteer Grants were an initiative of the former Coalition Government designed to assist and encourage volunteers. They are available to help community organisations to:

  • support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers
  • support the inclusion of vulnerable people through volunteering
  • encourage, support, and increase participation in volunteering.
