The Sidney Myer Fund and the GALFA Board of Directors are pleased to announce our next joint funding round, as part of the Sidney Myer Fund Poverty and Disadvantage Small Grants Program, to the value of $15,000.

This grant round will focus on improving the wellbeing of LGBTI 1 people living with a disability.

We encourage projects that are collaborations between disability advocacy and LGBTI groups, and from States and Territories other than Victoria.

The projects should aim to assist LGBTI people living with a disability in any of the following areas:

  • Reducing isolation
  • Recognising multiple identities including Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander or multicultural
  • Building community capacity
  • Enhancing cultural engagement and development
  • Building evidence
  • Improving LGBTI inclusive practice in services.

Applicants should focus on projects over a 1-2 year period through either:

  • Community development
  • Education initiatives
  • Applied, community-led research with tangible outcomes in the field
  • Events or conferences

Applicants must submit an expression of interest by email to GALFA using the appropriate form by 5pm Monday 5th March 2018. Those short listed will be advised by 23rd March and will be invited to submit a full application using the Sidney Myer Fund online application system by 27th April 2018. The successful applicant will be advised in June, with the project to start no earlier than 1st July 2018.
