Youth Grants

Alice Springs Core After-Hours Youth Services

Funding is available for core youth services that offer regular after hours and night-time activities and support for vulnerable young people in Alice Springs.

Grants of up to $650 000 per application per organisation are available for each year in the period July 2018 to June 2020. All applications will be assessed according to the selection criteria outlined in the Grant Funding Guidelines.

Non-government organisations, local government and community organisations are invited to apply for funding to provide safe, accessible places where young people can hang-out, have something to do and get access to the support they need.

Funding will support collaborative working relationships with other service providers and build service capacity that benefits young people, families and the community.

Applications close on Friday 6 April 2018.
