Volunteer Grants - applications now CLOSEDThu, 26 Jul 2012
The applications are relatively simple, the purpose of the funding is to provide between $1000 - $5000 to non for profit groups within the community for items that will assist and hopefully encourage more volunteers.
Grants are available to:
- Purchase portable, tangible, small equipment items to help their volunteers
- Contribute to the reimbursement of fuel costs for their volunteers who use their own car to transport others to activities, to deliver food, assist with medical appointments or help people in need
- Contribute to the reimbursement of transport costs incurred by volunteers with disability, who are unable to drive
- Contribute to the costs of training courses and/or undertake background screening checks for their volunteers.
Application forms and guidelines can be downloaded from the following website http://www.fahcsia.gov.au/sa/volunteers/funding/Pages/volunteer_grants2012.aspx
