Funding opportunity

South Eastern NSW PHN is seeking to fund innovative initiatives that:

‘Improve health and wellbeing in Aboriginal, refugee and/or youth at risk groups within the Wollongong and Shellharbour regions.’

Grant submissions must:

  • have a clear alignment to the purpose of achieving and maintaining good health and wellbeing through increased physical activity and/or improved nutrition:
    • working with the community to be more physically active
    • food as a pathway to health
  • be based within the Wollongong and/or Shellharbour region
  • focus on one or more of the identified groups (Aboriginal, refugee and/or youth at risk)
  • demonstrate how you will co-design the initiative with the relevant community.

A total funding pool of $160,000 (ex GST) is available to be allocated across three initiatives.

Submissions should be based on potential grant funding of $40,000 (ex GST) per initiative and an indicative budget based on that amount needs to be included in the application. The three selected initiatives will receive a guaranteed once only funding amount of $40,000 (ex GST). All three applicants will have the opportunity to increase this amount by influencing the audience with their ‘pitch’ on Pitch Night.

N.B submissions for this opportunity have now closed.
