Closing Date & Time

The Australian Government is inviting applications via a targeted non-competitive process to deliver services under the Family and Communities Program/Strong and Resilient Communities Activity/Inclusive Communities grants from 2018-19 to 30 June 2021.

Inclusive Communities grants aim to increase the social and economic participation of vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals and families within their communities and enhance their life‑time wellbeing and sense of community belonging.

Funding will be available to the invited organisations to deliver two projects that support vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals and/or their families and carers. These are:

  • A project to support disengaged youth living in Queensland, who have left school early or are at risk of poor educational outcomes, to undertake further study through a flexible learning environment.
  • A project to support people with autism and their family and carers living in New South Wales and provide them with information and access to services.

More information about the Families and Communities/Strong and Resilient Communities/Inclusive Communities grants as well as requirements for applicants, can be found in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines.
