Australia Post Community Grants support projects that connect people and improve mental wellbeing in local communities.

Local community groups create positive change in countless people’s lives. To help them deliver for their communities, we award Community Grants of up to $10,000 each year to fund community led, local projects. To be eligible, a project  must demonstrate:

  • the primary purpose is to improve mental health and mental wellbeing outcomes of a community
  • it will help people meaningfully connect in their local community for improved mental health and mental wellbeing outcomes
  • it is locally led and delivered.
