Youth Engagement Grants – Expressions of Interest Now Open

October 19, 2021

Small multicultural and Aboriginal clubs and community organisations are invited to apply for grants of up to $50,000 to support young people make positive life choices and reach their potential.

The Youth Engagement Grants are an initiative under the Victorian Government’s Crime Prevention Strategy. The grant provide funding to support projects that use cultural connection, sport, arts, music or other creative activities to engage young people between 8-24 years old.

The program will involve an initial expression of interest (EOI) process, followed by support for selected organisations to plan activity and develop a quality grant proposal which will be assessed for funding suitability.

The grants may fund new or existing activities that support young people, such as:

• strengthening connection to community and culture through sports, arts, and music

• education, training and pathways to employment
• opportunities to participate in supportive activities during school holidays.

EOIs must be submitted online by 4pm on 13 December 2021. Late EOIs cannot be submitted or considered, to be fair to all applicants.

An information session will be held online on Wednesday 3 November, 6-6.45pm. Register via the website below.

For all grant information, including the link to register for the information session, please email Dr. Caitlin Honey, General Manager (Clubs and Community) at Caitlin.Honey@athsvic.org.au.
