ACCAN works towards achieving communications services that are trusted, inclusive, and available for all.

With this aim, the ACCAN Grants Program funds projects to enable research on telecommunications issues, represent telecommunications consumers, or create educational tools which empower consumers to understand telecommunications products and services and make decisions in their own interests.

On the following pages you will find all the information you need to decide if your project idea is eligible for an ACCAN Grant, and how to apply. 

To be eligible, projects must address systemic telecommunications consumer issues. Have a browse through the list of previous ACCAN grants recipients and current projects to get a feel for the type of work the Program funds.

2021 Round 

The 2021 Round was open for applications in February, for projects running July 2021 - May 2022. Please take a look around the following pages for Timeline, Guidelines and other hints and tips.
