Grants session

Grants session

Essential information every community group, small business and social enterprise needs to find at their library

Event Information

  • Online briefing designed for public library staff, but all welcome
  • Presentations from Australian Government departments actively promoting grants programs
  • Opportunity to ask questions and provide local insights
  • Takeaway information to benefit the charities, enterprises and other small organisations that your community most values.

Your public library is close to community groups, charities, social enterprises and not-for-profits and the one thing they all have in common is the need for funding to support the good work they do. The same goes for entrepreneurs, start ups and small businesses, trying to grow and create employment. Most are doing it tough in the midst of a pandemic.

The good news is that the federal government has a broad range of community and business grants, which you can promote through your library service: spreading the word, unlocking potential government investment and enabling these organisations to fulfil their ambitions to the benefit of all.

ALIA has partnered with the Department of Social Services and AusIndustry (the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources) to bring you this online session, where you will learn about the grants that are available and the resources to raise awareness of them through your library service. AusIndustry is also keen to gain insights about the kind of programs that would best serve the business community in your area.
