Grants and grant funded projects

The DCS Community Grant Funded Partners initiative.

The Program is currently under review to determine its operational efficiency and success in meeting intended outcomes. DCS has considered feedback from a range of stakeholders and is now looking to develop new mechanisms to fund and support organisations delivering programs to the benefit of prisoners and offenders.

While the program is under review, the next round of competitive grants scheduled for September 2018 will be suspended for the 2018/19 financial year.

We appreciate your support and interest in the DCS Community Grants Program and we look forward to providing new and improved funding opportunities from 2019.

Current grant agreements are not affected by this suspension.
