There are various grants that community based organisations and not-for-profits can apply for. Many organisations rely on these to continue their great work. Grants are available through various levels of government and from private sources.
The Queensland Government's Grants Finder may help you find funding and assistance programs available to you.
Skilling for Queenslanders for Work
The Queensland Government has announced $320 million over 4 years, with $80 million each year ongoing, to continue the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative. The initiative will assist up to 15,000 disadvantaged Queenslanders each year to gain skills, qualifications and experience to enter and stay in the workforce.
