Individual lesbians or lesbian based/lesbian friendly non profit organisations from throughout Australia are eligible to apply for LInc's 2021 grants (up to $1,000) per grant). To be eligible for funding, projects must demonstrate that they: meet an identified social, cultural, educational, health, welfare, recreational, personal development or legal need of the lesbian community; target discrimination against lesbians and/or aim to improve the civil rights and/or status of lesbians within the general community; aim to improve the access of lesbians to programs, services, activities and opportunities available to the general community; aim to increase the vocational training and/or employment opportunities of lesbians.
Projects may aim to benefit the lesbian community in general or one or more groups within the lesbian community. Groups may be racial, cultural, geographic, or may have specific identified needs or shared interests and concerns. LInc considers the children of lesbians as part of the lesbian community.
Eligible projects are those which reflect the objectives of the Community Grants Program and fall within a category appropriate to the funding program. Categories are:
- Literary, visual or performing arts activities or functions
- Social functions
- Classes or workshops
- Production of information or resources for educational or promotional purposes
- Support groups or services
- Advisory services
- Sporting and recreational activities or functions
- Other appropriate activities or services approved by LInc
Funds available under the Community Grants Program are limited. This means that not all applications for funding will be successful. Priority in funding will be given to projects which:
- clearly demonstrate how the project meets one or more of the program objectives
- have the potential for a range of positive outcomes for lesbians
- will benefit a wide range of lesbians or a specific population group of the lesbian community
- are likely to be successfully implemented
- make effective use of grant funds
Applications close: 1 October 2021.
