Volunteers – Small Project Funding
Monday, 2nd April 2001 at 1:04 pm

The International Year of Volunteers Small Grants Program has moved into stage two with hundreds of organisations about to be notified of their success in obtaining funding for their projects.

Late last year the Federal Government announced a small grants program to assist local organisations celebrate the International Year of Volunteers (IYV) 2001. The program follows feedback from a series of community consultations conducted across regional Australia, which revealed that small local organisations would benefit from funding targeted at local activities.

The IYV Small Grants Program is offering funding of up to $5,000 for proposals meeting one or more of the International Year of Volunteers objectives.

The Round One recipients will be announced via the government web site in the next week. Some three thousand organisations applied for funding and the government has chosen 700 successful applicants.

Two rounds of funding were made available. The second round closes on 10 April 2001.

For more information on the small grants program and an application form for Round 2, contact the Department of Family and Community Services on free call 1300 653 227 or check out the web site at
