Youth Grants

Youth Engagement Grants Program
Do you need some funding for an innovative event, program or project that engages young Territorians aged 12 to 25 years? If so, the Office of Youth Affairs may be able help make your idea happen!
The Office of Youth Affairs manages the Youth Engagement Grants Program. The program engages young Territorians through a variety of drug and alcohol free entertainment and youth development and leadership programs. Grants of up to $2,000 are available. Quick response grants of up to $500 for individuals and up to $2,000 for organisations are also available.

Youth Engagement Grants Program - Information Kit

The information kit is a helpful resource if you are thinking of planning an event or activity during our funding rounds.

Each year OYA receives a large response from young people and organisations wanting to submit grant applications for youth event/activities. This publication is a summary of the grant application process, tips to make your grant application stand out from the rest and information about ‘how to’ organise an event/activity and so much more!
