Community Grants

Congratulations to our 2021 Community Grant recipients

We’ve awarded $1 million in grants to 100 local community organisations across Australia helping people become job-ready through education, training and employment opportunities.  
 

This year, as community organisations continue the transition to 'Covid-normal', we've again reinvested in our existing community partners who are creating job opportunities and providing training and education to enhance employment readiness for people experiencing disadvantage. 


Community Grants provide:

  • $10,000 to local community organisations helping people become job-ready through education, training and employment opportunities.
  • Non-financial support including our Community Ambassador program to help drive impact and access to financial capability programs.

Community Grants are awarded to local community organisations supporting:

  • Indigenous Australians
  • Refugees & asylum seekers
  • Women at risk
  • Youth at risk (>12 years of age)
  • People who are homeless or at risk of homelessness
  • People who've experienced family or domestic violence
  • People living with a disability (including carers)
  • People living with a mental health issue (including carers)
     

Community Grants impact:

  • Through the 2021 Community Grant program, it is estimated the grants will touch the lives of over 8,000 Australians around the country. Learn more about our 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018 and 2017 Community Grant recipients.
