Are you an organisation with volunteers that needs funding?

Applications are now open for the Federal Government's Volunteer Grants program, offering organisations within the electorate of Mayo that rely heavily upon volunteers the opportunity to source grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 for a range of items and/or activities that directly relate to supporting those volunteers.

Expressions of interest must be lodged by 5pm, Monday 20th January 2020.

All applicants are required to submit a simple EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FORM  (which includes a summary of their proposed expenses) via email to Rebekha's Program coordinator Jassmine Wood at


Detailed information regarding the program, including eligible organisations and expenses can be found in the program’s grant guidelines, available at:

An independent committee of community experts will assess the expressions of interest and nominate (invite) the applications that may then proceed and apply formally to the Government with the endorsement of Rebekha Sharkie MP.

Ultimately successful applications will be announced by the Government through the office of Rebekha Sharkie MP later in the year.
