Australia Post has launched its new community program – Our Neighbourhood, a national grants program.

Our Neighbourhood Community Grants are open to eligible registered charities and community organisations for amounts between $1000 and $25,000 to support local projects.

Our Neighbourhood Community Grants will be awarded to organisations with projects that help connect local communities and foster inclusion across Australian neighbourhoods.

The Our Neighbourhood program has been designed to provide opportunities for people from varying backgrounds and communities. With a focus on local, it will also extend to regional and remote, the disadvantaged, the culturally diverse and small business.

Our Neighbourhood Community Grants are now open for applications and will close on Friday, 28 June 2013 at 5pm (AEST). You can apply for a grant today at
