$200,000 Grants To Focus on Homelessness or Family Violence
Tuesday, 27th June 2017 at 8:45 am

Not for profits which work to build resilience and capability for people who are experiencing homelessness or domestic and family violence are being invited to apply for grants totalling $200,000.

Community Sector Banking, Australia’s only banking service dedicated to not for profits, has launched the theme for its annual Social Investment Grants Program, which open on 10 July.

The program, which is administered in conjunction with the Community Enterprise Foundation, is funded by Community Sector Banking and contributions from Social Investment Deposit Account holders.

Each year a different theme is selected by determining the areas where the grants will generate the most impact.

Community Sector Banking CEO Andrew Cairns said they had an “overwhelming response” to last year’s Social Investment Grants Program, which focused on reducing homelessness.

“The theme for the 2017 Social Investment Grants Program was decided after careful consideration – homelessness, together with domestic and family violence are among the greatest social crises we face today, and they are in fact interrelated,” Cairns said.

“Homelessness is a growing problem right across Australia, and a large percentage of those seeking homelessness services have experienced domestic violence.

“Not for profits are vital in addressing both homelessness and family violence – they are at the forefront of supporting the most vulnerable in our society.”

“Through our 2017 Social Investment Grants Program, we aim to support not for profits to build resilience and capability in those most vulnerable, and ultimately empower them to reverse their situation.”

Previous grant recipients include Youth Projects in Melbourne, which received a $50,000 grant in 2016 to fund the Dining Room Project, which tackles the issues of food insecurity and poor health that people experiencing homelessness often face, and HoMie, which successfully crowdfunded on letsact.com.au to match fund the $50,000 grant from Community Sector Banking providing a total of $101,955.37 for their Pathway Project.

The grants are available across two categories.

Applications open on 10 July and close 4 August. For more information see here.
