Up to $20,000 in grants is available for organisations that help the community to navigate civil issues and the Victorian justice system.
The grants are made available through the Victoria Law Foundation’s Community Legal Grants program.
These grants will fund one-off projects that address a demonstrated legal need for a specific community. Examples of appropriate projects include (but are not limited to):
- development of a new resource or tool
- workshops for community education on a specific legal topic, and
- pilot projects that offer new approaches to delivering legal information.
Who can apply?
Community Legal Grant applications are open to community legal organisations and not-for-profit community groups. Non-legal organisations are encouraged to partner with a legal organisation to ensure accurate legal information is provided to the audience group. The VLF only funds organisations – individuals are not able to apply.
Applications close 5:00pm on Monday 7 March 2022.
