2017-18 Youth InterACT Grants

This Grant Program provides funding for innovative new projects that enable young people aged 12 – 25 years old to lead and participate in community development activities for other young people in Canberra and the region.

The aim of the 2017-18 Youth InterACT Grants Program is to support young Canberrans to actively engage and connect with other young people in the community.

There are many ways that an activity, event or project can be facilitated.

For instance:

  • Building supportive connections between community members using sport, recreation, cultural and creative activities and events;
  • Creating awareness of issues affecting young people;
  • Increasing opportunities for young people to participate in local community events, activities and youth related causes; and
  • Recognising the contribution that young people make to their local communities.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to  demonstrate how their projects, events or activities will increase young  people’s social inclusion in Canberra.
