Youth Affairs Council Victoria (YACVic)
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant stress for LGBTIQA+ young people, with social isolation, changes to services, insecure work and housing.
In response, Youth Affairs Council Victoria in partnership with the Victorian Government, has opened the 2020 round of the Healthy Equal Youth (HEY) Grants to provide $10,000 of support for initiatives aimed at supporting LGBTIQA+ young people’s mental health and wellbeing through COVID-19 and beyond.
Grants of $10,000 are available for projects and initiatives aimed at improving the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTQIA+ young Victorians. There's a special grant category for youth-led initiatives too.
Over 10 years, HEY Grants have supported over 99 organisations with $1.1 million of funding directed to assist LGBTQIA+ young people's mental health and well-being.
To extend ANZ and Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras' support and commitment to the LGBTIQ+ community beyond the Mardi Gras festivities, we developed the ANZ & Sydney Mardi Gras Community Grants. Now in its third year, the grants provide financial funding for a wide range of purposes including education and training, community development and creation, arts and culture – anything under the rainbow. In partnership with Sydney Mardi Gras, we're awarding grants of $2,500, $5,000, $7,500 or $10,000 to LGBTIQ+ not-for-profit community organisations, charities and individuals doing work to help support Australian LGBTIQ+ communities.
Applications open on Tuesday 1 September and close on Sunday 4 October 2020, so apply now for your chance to win an ANZ & Sydney Mardi Gras Community Grant.
