2015-2016 Community Support Levy Grants Program
The 2015-2016 Community Support Levy Charitable Organisations Grants Program is now closed.
The 2015-2016 Community Support Levy Charitable Organisations Grants Program was open from Saturday 14 November 2015 to Friday 11 December 2015.
Applications were invited for projects that maximise the health and well-being of vulnerable groups and communities. Up to $15 000 (plus GST) per organisation is available in this grants round.
The focus of the 2015-2016 grants round is building capacity in individuals, families and communities. Projects will build on the strengths of local communities to provide Tasmanians with opportunities for greater physical and mental health and wellbeing.
Eligible organisations are incorporated charities or not-for-profit community organisations whose dominant purpose is charitable, altruistic and for the benefit of the Tasmanian community. Organisations that provide a return to shareholders or partners are not eligible.
Grant funding will only be considered for projects and activities that maximise the health and well-being of vulnerable groups or communities. Applicants must identify which group or community their project will benefit. Vulnerable groups and communities include those impacted by geographic, economic, health social or cultural disadvantages.
For more information about this grants round, please read the 2015-2016 CSL Grants Program Guidelines (link below).
