Community Grants

nib foundation's Community Grant program aims to support locally-based initiatives which will make a positive difference to the health and wellbeing of Australian communities, with a focus on the health of young people, and carers. A Community Grant round is held each year and applications are accepted from eligible organisations across Australia.

Funding of $5,000 to $50,000 will be provided to 10-15 organisations each year to undertake projects that run for approximately 12 months.

2016 Community Grant Round closed 30 June

Our 2016 grant round closed on 30 June. Applications are now being assessed and all applicants will be notified of the outcome of their submission in October 2016.

Our next grant round will be held in mid-2017. Dates and 2017 Grant Guidelines will be available on this website early in 2017.

For more information about our previous community partners please see the Community Partners page or view our latest Community Report.

Multi-Year Partnerships

nib foundation has established Multi-Year Partnerships with 13 not-for-profit organisations that address health issues of a significant regional and/or national prevalence. Funding of up to $500,000 per annum is awarded to our Multi-Year Partners to establish and maintain innovative and practical programs, generally for a period of three years or longer.

From time to time nib foundation proactively seeks new Multi-Year Partnerships that support the health of young people and carers. Most of our budget is applied to supporting our existing partners for a number of years, and application to this program is by invitation only.
