The Capacity Building Stream of the Poverty and Disadvantage Program is based on a definition and understanding of capacity building that emphasises organisational effectiveness and impact, and seeks to enhance grant recipient organisations’ ability to achieve their missions.
Grants for capacity building will be made to community-based and not-for-profit organisations that are working with young people aged from 12 to 23 years living in or transitioning out of out-of-home care.
Grants have been awarded to the following organisations through the Capacity Building Stream for 2015-2016:
- Junction Australia – South Australia
- South Coast Medical Service Aboriginal Corporation – New South Wales
- William Campbell Foundation – New South Wales
The Capacity Building Stream for 2016-2017 will not be open for expressions of interest. A small number of organisations will be invited to apply for support.
