Mini Grant Application Form

Mini Grants Initiative

Each year the Coalition offers mini grants of between $500 and $1000 to community groups and organisations to assist in promoting mental health events during mental health week. 

The Coalition encourages organisations, schools and community groups to think creatively and collaborate with other organisations, especially ones outside the mental health sector. Consumer, family and carer engagement in the proposed activities or events is also highly encouraged.

The theme for this year is Celebrating Our Strengths. The aim of the week is to raise awareness, promote good mental health and wellbeing in the wider community and provide information about services available to provide support.

Community awareness and understanding is promoted through events and activities that engage the corporate, community sectors and the wider community. 

Application Criteria & Eligibility

The Selection Panel will assess the applications against the following criteria: 

  •  An ABN is required, and events must be undertaken in the NT.
  • The planned activity must clearly tie in with the theme for Mental Health Week and promote positive mental health and social and emotional wellbeing in the community. 
  • The level of partnership with other organisations in delivering the event.
  • Innovation and creativity of the event.
  • The expected level of service users, community, family, and carer involvement.
  • Applications featuring diversified income streams and or in-kind support will be considered favorably.
