ACCAN has received a record 71 applications for the 2011 round of the ACCAN Grants Scheme, which closed on 20 April 2011.

This represents more than a threefold increase from last year. We're delighted to have received such a diverse mix of high-quality applications with projects spanning a wide range of communications issues affecting Australian consumers. 

The aim of the scheme is to fund projects that help empower communities of consumers to act in their own interests; to enable consumers to navigate the challenges of the communications market; and to build on the sound body of evidence that supports ACCAN’s advocacy work.

We would like to take the opportunity to formally thank all individuals and organisations who applied for funding through the Scheme and wish you the very best of success with your application and your project.

Thanks also to our member groups who helped to spread the word about our Grants Scheme through your networks.

All 71 applications will now go to the three-person Independent Grants Panel with the announcement about which projects have been successful in securing funding to follow in June 2011.
