Applications are now open for the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation’s Prevention Partnerships Program.
The Prevention Partnerships Program continues to play an important role in helping prevent and reduce gambling-related harm within Victorian communities.
Since 2014, it has funded a wide range of community-based, not-for-profit, local government and public health organisations to test new ideas and build evidence for effective practice in the prevention of gambling harm.
This year, the Foundation is looking to fund programs and initiatives under two streams:
- smaller grants for capacity building projects aiming to raise awareness of gambling harm; and
- larger grants for the delivery of innovative, primary prevention initiatives to at-risk communities.
Funding from these grants will be available over two years from 2019 – 2021.
Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation CEO Shane Lucas encouraged local organisations to consider applying for a Prevention Partnership Program grant.
“We are proud to work with our community partners who share our aim to reduce gambling harm in Victoria.
“If your organisation has a new initiative which can further help us achieve this goal, I would encourage you to apply.”
Applications for grants from not for profit organisations, social enterprise, local government and community or public health organisations are welcome.
Applicants from organisations based in regional Victoria, and those who work with Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities and Aboriginal communities are also strongly encouraged to apply.
Submissions of expressions of interest will be open until 21 June 2019 at 5:00pm.
