Funding Open for Application

To assist organisations to see where services fit within the new programmes, the Department has developed the DSS Grants Services Map which illustrates the types of services available for funding in the current application process.

Please see below the list of grants which are now open for application. Selecting a specific title will take you through to detailed information on that round, including the application information.

Please note, there are three different selection types available – open, direct and restricted. More information on selection types is available on the Selection Types page.
