Funding Open for Application

The Community Grants Hub website offers service providers information about Commonwealth Government grant opportunities and helpful information to support organisations seeking or managing grants to deliver community services and support.

All DSS grants are now advertised on the Community Grants Hub website and organisations are encouraged to subscribe to receive Hub updates and other grant alerts.  Subscribers to DSS alerts will now receive updates from the Hub.

Contacting the Community Grants Hub

Please contact the Community Grants Hub if you would like further information or to offer feedback.

General information to help you prepare and submit an application for DSS grants can be found in Frequently Asked Questions and on the Applying for Grants page. This includes fact sheets, DSS grants policies and information on service areas.

You can also see a list of grants which have now closed on the Closed Funding Rounds page.

Please note, there are three different selection types available – open, restricted and direct. Direct selection processes are not published on either this page or the Closed Funding Round page. More information on selection types is available on the Selection Types page.

The outcome of all funding rounds, including direct rounds, will be published in the DSS Grants Report no later than fourteen working days after the grant agreement for the grant takes effect, in accordance with the Commonwealth Grants Rules and Guidelines.

Organisations interested in DSS grants are encouraged to subscribe to receive alerts when new information is made available.
