Small Grants and Law Week Grants are now open – apply now

Small Grants support projects that improve community understanding of the justice system where there is evidence of legal need. Grants up to $5,000 (excl. GST) are available. Apply at any time until 30 June 2019, or until funding allocation is exhausted.
The Foundation will continue to offer Small Grants and Law Week Grants in early 2019.
Our Grants program is changing
From 2019, the Foundation will take a new approach to grants. We will offer three kinds of grants:
Knowledge Grants will support organisations to develop their capacity to collect data and analyse information about legal need.
Community Legal Grants
Community Legal Grants will support projects that improve understanding of civil legal issues and the Victorian justice system which respond to community need.
Law Week Grants
We will maintain the Law Week Grants program to support events during Law Week. The Foundation will support projects that improve community understanding of the law and justice system through engaging events.
If you have an idea for a grant, or are unsure which grant to apply for, contact our Grants Manager. The Grants Manager can provide feedback on your project proposal, indicate if it meets selection criteria and advise if funds are available, giving your application the best chance of success.
