CRA grant making PRIORITY AREAS for projects within Australia are:

Young children and teenagers – who are forced to live and work on the streets, or who are victims of physical or emotional abuse;

Teenagers – who experience problems with drugs and alcohol, or who are suicidal;

Indigenous Australians – who live in deprived communities and do not have the resources to enable them to make the changes they need to improve their lives;

Refugees and asylum seekers – who come to Australia in search of freedom and safety;

People with disabilities – who need help to gain equal rights and realise their full potential; and

Volunteer projects – (such as, emergency and community services) especially in rural and remote areas of Australia.

Volunteering Australia acts as Grants Manager for Projects funded within Australia. In all priority areas, the Grants Manager is interested in how your organisation involves volunteers.
