Small Grants Program

The Small Grants Program encourages innovative community-based projects that will make a positive change in the lives of TAC clients and Victorians with a disability. The program offers grants of up to $50,000.

Projects should be user-led and facilitate improved outcomes across health and well-being, social and community connectedness and participation, independent living, safety and resilience.

Applications for the Small Grants Program are now closed. We expect to offer the program again in mid-2024.
