Youth Development Quick Response Grant

If you are a local group running a project that engages young people in the community or you are developing a new youth-focused program or event that involves young people aged 10-25 years, then you might be eligible for a Youth Development Quick Response Grant.

Each financial year from 1 July, eligible organisations can apply to Nillumbik Shire Council for up to $2,000 out of a pool of $10,000. Grants are available until the funds are expended.

These grants fund small projects that meet an identified community need. We respond to applications within four weeks of applying.

To be eligible for a Youth Development Quick Response Grant, you or your auspice body must be an incorporated non-profit community group or organisation with a certificate of currency and public liability insurance to the value of $10 million.

The Youth Development Quick Response Grants support local groups to run projects that:

• develop new youth-focused programs and events
• increase participation for people aged 10 to 25
• empower young people to be involved in local activities through participation, leadership or project design.
