One-off grants between $10,000 and $50,000 are available to not-for-profit organisations and local councils for youth-led and youth-driven community projects.
The minister for police and the minister for emergency services Troy Grant said grants provided to local organisations would help young people to participate, engage and be included in our community
This year’s funding round would have an additional $400,000 available.
