Our Grants program is changing

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.

Small Grants will be available until June 2019 or until the funding is exhausted. From July, Small Grants will be replaced by Community Legal Grants. All existing Small Grants will continue.

What stays the same?

Law Week Grants will continue as usual, in support of projects that improve community understanding of the law and justice system through engaging events.

Law Week Grants up to $3,000 are now available. Applications close 4 March 2019.
