On 9 January 2018, the Tasmanian Government launched the Population Growth Strategy Small Grants Fund, a one off initiative to help businesses and not-for-profit organisations bring their ideas to life to attract more people to Tasmania.
Funding is available for eligible projects, initiatives, events and/or services that support the Population Growth Strategy’s three key pillars, including, but not limited to:
- programs, campaigns, or expos to help business or industry recruit skilled staff;
- initiatives to help retain local talent in the state or support local employment outcomes for international students;
- projects to help improve the liveability of Tasmania’s communities; and
- employment programs or social enterprises designed to promote positive outcomes for Tasmania’s migrant communities.
A total of $400 000 in funding is available to applicants in grants of up to $50 000 to be paid during the 2018 calendar year.
Applications close 5:00pm Friday, 23 February 2018.
Full details in relation to eligibility criteria are contained within the Fund Guidelines. To access the Guidelines and to apply online, visit the State Growth website at: https://www.stategrowth.tas.gov.au/policies_and_strategies/populationstrategy
