Grants Victoria is a directory of Victorian Government grants and assistance. Here you’ll find general information about grants and assistance for individuals, businesses and communities that can help you:

  • fund ideas and initiatives;
  • develop local and national solutions;
  • get assistance in times of hardship; and
  • access further information.

Victorian Government includes Departments, statutory authorities and government business enterprises.

Grants include funding programs, individual grants, fellowships and scholarships.

Assistance includes help or support in various forms for example, government concessions, such as the seniors card and the winter gas concession, goods, such as water saving rebates and shower heads, or funds,  such as the community safety fund grant, for citizens of Victoria.

We are working to ensure that information on Grants Victoria is current and will update accordingly.

    • 2018 Participation for CALD Seniors Grants Program
      2018 Participation for CALD Seniors Grants Program

      The Participation for CALD Seniors Grants Program offers small grants to organisations to create or expand community participation opportunities for isolated culturally diverse seniors. Evidence shows that older people from culturally diverse backgrounds are often at a higher risk of social isolation due to a range of factors such as language and cultural barriers, lack of confidence and limited awareness of services available to them.

      Eligible organisations such as seniors clubs, ethnic community groups, migrant resource centres, neighbourhood houses, aged care facilities, local councils and other not for profit organisations are invited to apply for funding up to $10,000.

      Applications must be lodged by 5pm, 1 June 2018. Please note that no late or incomplete applications will be considered. Successful applicants will be awarded grants for projects commencing 1 October 2018 and concluding on 30 September 2019.
