Up To $50K Available in Community Grants
26 May 2015 at 10:14 am

The nib foundation, a Not for Profit charitable organisation, is set to take applications for its 2015 health and wellbeing Community Grants worth almost $750,000.

Opening next week, the annual funding round will see the foundation allocate between 10 and 15 grants of up to $50,000 to registered charities to undertake community-based programs that run for up to 12 months.

The foundation says it is looking to support charity-run, grassroots initiatives that make a positive difference to the health and wellbeing of communities across metropolitan and regional areas of Australia.

nib foundation Chairman Keith Lynch said the community grants are a good example of how even modest amounts of funding can assist a dedicated Not for Profit group in making a real difference by tackling an area of need within its own community.

“Our focus is on supporting programs that aim to make real change to health issues and meet a demand that is not adequately addressed by existing services,” Lynch said.

“This may include improving access to current and targeted health information and education, building capacity to cope with health challenges through improved social connectedness, mentoring and peer support, or trialling new ways to improve physical, mental and social well being.”

The foundation said that each year it  aims to provide up to $2 million in funding to support a range of partners through multi-year partnerships and community grants.

Applications for the 2015 Community Grants open on Monday 1 June and close at 5pm on Friday 26 June 2015. Application forms are available online.
