Impact Grants Program

ACHL is excited to announce its new Impact Grants Program, available to customers across Australia.

The program is designed to encourage aspiration and remove barriers for individuals and communities who want to achieve their goal. Whether it is a TAFE course, a gym membership, art classes, driving lessons or a community event, there’s an opportunity for you and your community.

Aligning with our Social Impact Framework and Community Development Framework, there are three categories:

Education and Employment

Provides up to $1,500 to encourage a wide range of educational and employment opportunities.

Social Connection

Provides up to $300 funding towards health and well-being pursuits, such as gardening, sporting and fitness activities, arts and craft or music. It also includes anything that may enable inclusion, such as a car licence.

Community

Provides grants up to $2,000 to community organisations, support agencies or collective groups of CHL/ACHL tenants for community projects.

All ACHL tenants, irrespective of background, age and educational history are encouraged to apply.

Applications and Guidelines

Applications are open all year, with two assessments each year.

Round 1 – 28 January 2022 deadline

Round 2 – 29 July 2022 deadline

Within two weeks of the deadline, the Impact Grants Panel meet to assess applications and applicants are notified shortly after.
