Giving back to our volunteers

The 2019-20 Volunteer Grants recipients in Cowan will be announced soon!

Under the Volunteer Grants program, not-for-profit organisations where at least 40% of staff are volunteers are eligible for a Commonwealth grant.This funding can be used for a range of activities or expenditures that support the volunteers in your group – for a full list of eligible activities, please consult these Grant Opportunity Guidelines. (HINT: Check out Appendix A for a list of things an organisation can apply for!)

Further information is also available at

Unfortunately, because the Coalition Government has limited the funding available per electorate to $66,000, there is a limit to the number of expressions of interest I was able to recommend. We're expecting to hear the outcome of these expressions of interest from the Department by mid-May.
