Funding opportunity

South Eastern NSW PHN is seeking to fund innovative initiatives that:

‘Improve health and wellbeing in Aboriginal, refugee and/or youth at risk groups within the Wollongong and Shellharbour regions.’

Grant submissions must:

  • have a clear alignment to the purpose of achieving and maintaining good health and wellbeing through increased physical activity and/or improved nutrition:
    • working with the community to be more physically active
    • food as a pathway to health
  • be based within the Wollongong and/or Shellharbour region
  • focus on one or more of the identified groups (Aboriginal, refugee and/or youth at risk)
  • demonstrate how you will co-design the initiative with the relevant community.

A total funding pool of $160,000 (ex GST) is available to be allocated across three initiatives.

Submissions should be based on potential grant funding of $40,000 (ex GST) per initiative and an indicative budget based on that amount needs to be included in the application. The three selected initiatives will receive a guaranteed once only funding amount of $40,000 (ex GST). All three applicants will have the opportunity to increase this amount by influencing the audience with their ‘pitch’ on Pitch Night.
