Volunteer Grants enable community organisations to apply for grants of up to $5000 to:
* purchase small equipment items to assist their volunteers;
* assist with the reimbursement of fuel costs incurred by volunteers; and
* contribute towards the costs of training courses and background screening checks for volunteers
Applications opened on 29 October 2015 and will close on 9 December 2015 at 2pm AEDT. Grants will be paid by 30 June 2016.
