Small Grants

Our Small Grants make a big impact where and when it’s needed.

Thousands of Victorians benefit each year from the legal projects we fund through our Grants Program. The projects we support help Victorians to understand the law and use it to improve their lives. We are drawn to grant projects that have a connection to our own work – legal projects that reach out to the community, that engage Victorians with the law or that provide better legal information.

A Small Grant is perfect for organisations who need to act quickly, have an idea for a low-cost, high-impact legal project, or who need money to scope a larger project.

In 2017/18, we will offer Small Grants for projects that will help Victorians understand the law.

Small Grant are for projects with budgets up to $5,000 (excl. GST). You can apply at any time – and we can usually assess your application within a couple of weeks.
