The program supports the delivery of grant and sponsorship funding in 4 categories outlined below.
1. Individuals and Groups (Best for Deaf community members):
The Individuals and Groups stream supports personal or community projects that can demonstrate value to the Deaf community as a whole.
2. Community Events:
The Community Events stream provides funding or in-kind support to events delivered by or for the Deaf community, or events that want to improve their language access to be accessible to Deaf people.
3. Partnership Building:
Partnership Building support is provided to organisations who wish to develop a long term association with Deaf Connect. Partnership arrangements will involve ongoing mutually beneficial support beyond a single project or event and will have the capacity to run over the longer term.
4. Service Growth (available internally to Deaf Connect staff only):
Through this category the grants program has proudly supported the development of a range of new service offerings and projects throughout Deaf Connect.
