This Small Grants Program supports strategies to benefit Australian communities. The aims are to:
- alleviate the negative effects of poverty and disadvantage;
- demonstrate new ideas about how to address poverty and disadvantage;
- strengthen communities’ abilities to deal with poverty and disadvantage.
