Public Sector Innovation
The Public Sector Innovation Fund supports projects that test new approaches to solving complex policy challenges and delivering public value.
By providing project grants we seek to transform innovative ideas into better outcomes for Victorians, while fostering a dynamic environment of collaboration within the Victorian public sector.
Our focus is on innovative projects that respond to Victorian Government policy priorities and reflect the principles and approaches of public sector reform.
The Innovation Fund is open to applications from any organisation working with or within the Victorian public sector. Applications can be submitted at any time.
