Volunteer Grants 2021

The Volunteer Grants for 2021 are now open!

Grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 are available, with local Federal MPs allocated $132,450 for distribution to community based, not for profit organisations in their electorate. The grants are intended to benefit the volunteers specifically, not the Scouting youth.

This grant can be used for anything that will help make volunteering easier. For instance, fuel reimbursements to ease the financial burden of volunteering, a BBQ to help with cooking nights, or a laptop to help with organising the groups finances and storing photographs.

Federal MPs are asking eligible groups to fill in an EOI if interested in applying. Some MPs have the EOI up on their website already, while other MPs will require you to contact their Office directly. Once the EOI has been approved you will be asked to submit a full application. Where required, assistance with completing the application is available. It is strongly recommended you apply for this grant, so make sure to submit your EOI as soon as possible! Grant guidelines can be found here.

See the table below for a list of electorates and where to find your EOI.
