Jobs Victoria has recently announced the Jobs Victoria Innovation Fund. The Fund has been established to support new and innovative approaches to employment support and employment services through the provision of small grants.
The Fund will provide grants to support new projects that will benefit:
- Disadvantaged jobseekers with significant barriers to employment
- Unemployed or underemployed youth
- Victorian jobseekers and employers, by contributing to the workforce needs of emerging industries
- The employment services sector, through improved knowledge, research and capacity
Grants of between $50,000 to $250,000 will be available for any one project. Applications will need to demonstrate how the proposed outcomes justify the grant investment.
Projects that can demonstrate a use of partnership and/or leveraging of additional funding will be prioritised. Indicatively the department will expect to support up to 75 per cent of total project costs.
