Our Grants program is changing

December 16th 2018

Our grants program has long supported projects that have a significant impact on the lives of Victorians and the way they understand and use the law.

From 2019 we will take a new approach to grants, reflecting our focus on civil law and research.

What’s changing?

Our new program will be introduced in the 2019/20 financial year, and will offer two new types of grant:

  • Knowledge Grants – supporting organisations to develop their capacity to collect data, analyse and share information about civil legal need.
  • Community Legal Grants – supporting projects that improve community understanding of civil legal issues and the Victorian justice system.

General Grants are no longer available. We made 5 significant General grants in October and will support those to conclusion. We look forward to sharing the results.

What stays the same?

Small Grants will be available until June 2019 or until the funding is exhausted. From July, Small Grants will continue to be offered and will include applications to deliver Law Week events.
