The Australian Government is inviting organisations to apply for Volunteer Grants 2015 under the Strengthening Communities (Volunteering) activity.

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.
