2017-2018 Community Support Levy Grants Program

The 2017-2018 Community Support Levy Charitable Organisations Grants Program opens on Saturday 6 January 2018 and closes on Friday 2 February 2018.

Applications are 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 2017-2018 grants round is building capacity and resilience in individuals, families and communities. Projects will build on the strengths of local communities to provide Tasmanians with opportunities for greater 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 is only considered for projects and activities that maximise the health and well-being of vulnerable groups or communities. Applicants are required to identify which group or community their project will benefit. Vulnerable groups and communities include those impacted by geographic, economic, health social or cultural disadvantages.

Only applicants that meet the eligibility criteria and complete an appropriate 2017-2018 CSL COGP Application Form will be considered for funding. Please note that organisations are limited to one application per organisation for this grants round.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to read and consider the 2017-2018 CSL Guidelines as part of preparing their application. The Guidelines include information about eligibility criteria, funding focus and preferences, as well as guidance around how to prepare and submit an application.
