Activation grants are one-off grants awarded to new organisations joining the Be Connected Network. All organisations who join the network before December 2019 will be able to apply for a $2,000 Activation grant. The Activation grant is designed to get you started in the Be Connected Network, and for the funding, we expect partners to register the minimum number of learners as per your grant term on the Be Connected Learning Portal.
Funding can be spent on anything that will help you support older Australians to gain digital skills, including new devices, broadband fees, or expenses for digital mentors or volunteers.
Activation grants are available until November 2019, with applications assessed and funding awarded on a monthly basis.
