2019 Prevention Partnerships Program grants

The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation is pleased to announce expressions of interest for its Prevention Partnerships Program grants are now open.

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, we are 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.

Applications for grants from not for profit organisations, social enterprise, local government and community or public health organisations are welcome.

Applications from Aboriginal communities, organisations based in regional Victoria and organisations who work with Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities are strongly encouraged.

Submissions of expressions of interest will be open until 21 June 2019 at 5:00pm.
