Current Focus Area

The focus area for FY19-23 is improved transitions from education to further education and employment for Indigenous young people and young people from refugee backgrounds, aged 15 to 25 years.


Unsolicited applications for grants through the Poverty and Disadvantage Program will not be accepted. Rather, the Sidney Myer Fund will work with organisations whose work aligns with the focus area, with a view to making a very small number of commitments each year to support an organisation’s core operations. It is likely that two to three multi-year grants for core operational support will be approved each year.

Should your organisation’s work be in clear alignment with the focus area we encourage you to send an email to [email protected] to introduce yourself to the Program Manager.
