Funds available up to $10,000 for up to 2 years

This grant is time-limited (2019- 2023) and is funded by contributions from a Craigieburn-based gambling venue.

The Specialist Partnership Grant (Reducing Gambling Harm) is for new and innovative services, programs and projects to prevent and reduce the harms related to gambling for residents living in Hume.

Applications for the Specialist Partnership Grant (Reducing Gambling Harm) can be made by established not-for-profit organisations, schools or universities that have a track record in the delivery of services, programs or projects that focus on the prevention and reduction of harms from gambling.

The Specialist Partnership Grant (Reducing Gambling Harm) category is available in three funding streams:

STREAM 1: At Risk: To fund services, programs, projects or research that target specific community groups who are associated with a greater risk of gambling harm, including, but not limited to, older persons, young adults, socially isolated persons, people with disabilities and groups that have been identified through National and International research.

STREAM 2: Normalisation: To fund services, programs, projects or research that disrupt the “normalisation” of gambling, including, but not limited to, poker machines, sports betting, online or app-based gambling. For example, this could include public communications and messaging campaigns.

STREAM 3: Take-up of services: To fund services, programs or projects that increase the uptake of services or extend the reach of services for Hume residents in order to address the harms to those directly affected or are indirectly affected by gambling.
