2019-20 Volunteer Grants

Local community groups in Mitchell are eligible for federal funding to support their local volunteers. $66,000 of funding is available in Mitchell under the Morrison Government’s 2019-20 Volunteer Grants.

Volunteering is part of the Australian way of life and it has many social and economic benefits such as increased confidence, reduced marginalisation and skill development.

The grants form part of the Morrison Government’s commitment to supporting organisations whose volunteers assist our communities and encourage the inclusion of vulnerable people in our society.

The grants can be used to buy small equipment for volunteers or for the reimbursement of volunteer fuel, transport or training costs. Community groups can apply for between $1,000 and $5,000.

Please complete an Expression of Interest form and return to my office by 5:00pm, Friday, 7 February 2020.
