Australia Post announce the launch of the 2019 Australia Post Community Grants program.
The program offers grants of up to $10,000 for eligible projects that help people connect with each other to address local needs.
Funding may be awarded to eligible recipients, to support initiatives that:

- reduce barriers to participation in community life (e.g. transport, ability to pay, or access to community spaces); and/or
- develop skills and leadership capability to strengthen social and community networks.
To be eligible, organisations must:
- be an incorporated not-for-profit organisation
- provide community benefit
- be located within Australia
- provide services within Australia
- have an ABN (see the Australian Business Register for more information)
- have an Australian bank account that corresponds to the organisation’s ABN (individuals are not valid account holders).
If you have a community group or organisation you think would benefit from a grant of up to $10,000 and meets the eligibility criteria, please let them know about this opportunity. Please note, government entities, sole traders and educational institutions are not eligible.
