Many local councils provide Community Grants programs that will accept applications from small to medium community groups in their area. These programs provide funding opportunities for you to promote and run your group. We have a few facilitators that have successfully applied to Community Grants programs for funding assistance with things like venue hire, publicity materials, advertising costs, SMART Recovery manuals and training costs for peers.
To find these programs, go to your local council website and search for ‘Community Grants’.
To help you lodge a successful application we have included Grant application model answers (below) that also contains some basic information about SMART Recovery Australia such as our ABN, our DGR and TCC status and ACNC registration.
If you need any help with your application please contact us.
