Department of Social Services - Families and Communities Program
The Department of Social Services has announced the opening of the Volunteer Grants for 2016 which aim to support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers through single grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 towards the cost of small equipment used by volunteers, fuel and training.
In 2016, the eligibility criteria for applicants has changed and there is no longer a limit on the number of applications an organisation can submit, however Queensland Scout Formations are reminded that under QBSI 6.5 (Financial Management – Grants), all grant applications must have the prior approval of the Region Commissioner and Chief Commissioner and be lodged through the Branch Support Office prior to submission.
The following Instructions provide step by step guidance on how to apply for a Volunteer Grant and what information must be contained within your application to be eligible. The instructions have been agreed with the Department of Social Services who have specified what information should appear in each Section.
