Australian Communications Consumer Action Network

ACCAN Grants Scheme

The ACCAN Grants Scheme closed on Wednesday 9th April 2014 and will reopen in the first half of 2015.

Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified on the outcome of their application by mid-June 2014.

The Guidelines and other information on applying can be viewed here:

The ACCAN Grants Scheme funds projects that work towards a communications market that is fair and inclusive for all – a market which is available, accessible and affordable. Projects focus on developing research, advocacy, or educational tools that address issues for communications consumers in Australia.

There is scope for a wide variety of projects. Previous ACCAN grants recipients have produced research that has provided a strong evidence base for our advocacy work. Funding has also been used to develop educational materials designed to empower consumers and communities.

The ACCAN Grants Scheme is competitive, carries an annual budget of $250,000 and accepts applications during one round per year. Applicants can apply for funding of up to $60,000.
