Many organisations share our commitment to meeting the legal needs of Victorians. Our General Grants program supports these organisations, giving them the funding and assistance they need to take on legal projects that will benefit their community.
In 2016/17, our focus will again be on supporting Law Week and legal information projects. With Law Week projects, priority will be given to new Law Week events or to the expansion of previously delivered events, particularly in rural and regional areas. We will also offer grants for legal information projects where a demonstrated need can be shown.
Applications are now being accepted for General Grants, and close Monday 29 August 2016. Our General Grants are for projects with budgets of more than $5000 (excl. GST).
Small Grants are available if your project budget is less than $5000 (excl. GST). You can apply for a Small Grant at any time – there are no closing dates.
Before you apply:
- ensure your project relates to the delivery of a Law Week event or a legal information project where there is a recognised need
- read our grants criteria – this will help you understand what kinds of projects we want to fund
- at least six weeks before the close of applications contact our Grants Manager – the earlier the better.
- read about how the foundation can help you with your application.
General Grants are typically awarded within two months of the closing date.
