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.
The ACCAN Grants Scheme will open on Monday 16th February 2015 and will be accepting applications for 6 weeks until Tuesday 31st March 2015. The updated 2015 Guidelines have already been released and can be found on our How to Apply page.
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.
