Vol­un­teer Grants

Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS -

Gold­fields com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions who fre­quently re­ceive help from vol­un­teers can now ap­ply for grants of up to $5000.

The Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment has al­lo­cated $20 mil­lion for the 2015 round of Vol­un­teer Grants, which can be used to cover costs in­curred by those who work with­out a wage.

Those costs in­clude day-to-day fees or charges such as fuel, first aid train­ing, back­ground checks, and trans­port for vol­un­teers who can­not drive. Fund­ing for ba­sic tech­nol­ogy like com­put­ers and prin­ters can also be cov­ered.
