Organisations and Projects Funding Under the 2013-14 Community Support Levy Charitable Organisations Grants Program

The Community Support Levy is derived from profits of gaming machines in hotels and clubs and is held in trust by the Department of Treasury and Finance. The Grants are administered through the Gambling Support Program within the Department of Health and Human Services.

The 2013-2014 CSL Charitable Organisations Grants Round offered grants in two categories:

  • Up to $5,000 (plus GST) per organisation is available for small capital equipment purchases.
  • Up to $25,000 (plus GST) per organisation is available for community projects, with an emphasis on sustainability, innovation and linkages to existing services and resources.

The focus of the 2013-2014 CSL grants round was building sustainable and resilient individuals, families and communities. Applicants were encouraged to submit grant applications for projects that build on the strengths of the community.
