We are currently accepting applications for the Social Justice Small Grants program. Grants up to $10,000 are available for community organisations working to address poverty at the grass roots. It is estimated that 3.24 million people live below the poverty line in Australia. More than 1 in 8 adults and 1 in 6 children live in poverty.*
Priority will be given to projects that address poverty concerning women and children and marginalised groups in the community. Examples include projects that address unemployment, literacy, education and inclusion.
Organisations and projects must be in Australia and small to medium size organisations (turnover less than $500,000) that have limited access to other funding sources are prioritised.
Applications are due by Monday, 21 March 2022.
