Great news! We are proud to announce our NVW Small Grants Initiative has been expanded!!
Due to overwhelming interest from volunteer organisations in the NVW Small Grants Initiative, the Minister for Communities and Minister for Disability Services and Seniors, the Hon. Coralee O'Rourke MP, has announced a further $15,000 to support the expansion of the grants for 2020.
The increase in funding was in acknowledgement of the difficult year it has been for the volunteering sector and appreciation that volunteer organisations are crucial to Queensland’s unite and recover activities.
We welcome the additional funding which will enable a further 30 volunteer organisations to support the well-being of their volunteers by hosting events and activities that welcome volunteers back to a COVID safe environment.
Selected Additional Grant Recipients
Congratulations to the additional 30 organisations below who were successful in receiving a small grant to hold an event for volunteers as COVID-19 restrictions ease. Together they will share in a further $15,000.
