2021 Improved Wellbeing Round

The Tasmanian Community Fund recognises improved wellbeing as safe, connected, vibrant, healthy and positive communities.

The Tasmanian Community Fund is calling for expressions of interest ($100 000 to $500 000 over the life of the project) for a range of collaborative and sustainable projects that improve the wellbeing of Tasmanians in one or more of the following areas:

  • improving mental health/wellbeing outcomes
  • reducing violence including bullying
  • increasing educational engagement and attainment
  • enhancing preventable health outcomes
  • reducing homelessness
  • increasing community connection
  • reducing social isolation
  • diverting from the justice system
  • addressing addictive behaviours

Eligible applicants: Not-for-profit organisations proposing to undertake a project in Tasmania and who can provide, through their own or another parties resources, 10% of the amount being sought from the Tasmanian Community Fund as cash contribution towards the project. 

The cash contribution must be for items attributable to the project’s implementation and must not include on-going operational costs or in-kind amounts.

Application process:  This will be a two stage application process.  Applicants that move through to Stage 2 will have to provide a strong business case that demonstrates value for money, sustainability and short, medium and long-term improved wellbeing outcomes.

Project funding is available for:

  • a maximum of five years; 
  • projects that are tailored for the Tasmanian community;
  • programs, including pilot programs;
  • evaluation of the methodology being delivered.

 Funding is not available for:

  • feasibility studies;
  • duplication of existing services;
  • infrastructure (more than 20% of the requested amount);
  • projects that can be more suitably funded by another organisation;
  • projects that do not include collaboration and partnerships or a clear articulation as to why this is not possible.

Funding available: Around $2 million is available for allocation through this round. 

Assessment: Our grant rounds are highly competitive, and we are unable to support every worthwhile project. Organisations are strongly encouraged to contact Fund staff early in the process to discuss their proposed application. 

Further information: Visit the Fund’s website www.tascomfund.org or contact the Fund Office on 6165 8333.

  • For TCF purposes, not for profit organisations include Councils.

NAVIGATING (MOVING THROUGH) THE APPLICATION FORM

On every screen (page of the form) you will find a Form Navigation contents box, this links directly to every page of the application. Click the link to jump directly to the page you want.

You can also click 'next page' or 'previous page' on the top or bottom of each page to move forward or backward through the application.

SAVING YOUR DRAFT APPLICATION

If you wish to leave a partially completed application, press 'save' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you will find a list of any applications you have started or submitted. You can reopen your draft application and start where you left off.

You can also download any application, whether draft or completed, as a PDF. Click on the 'Download' button located at the bottom of the last page of the application form.

SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION

You will find a Review and Submit button at the bottom of the Navigation Panel. You need to review your application before you can submit it.

Once you have reviewed your application you can submit it by clicking on 'Submit' at the top of the screen or on the navigation panel. You will not be able to submit your application until all the compulsory questions are completed.

Once you have submitted your application, no further editing or uploading of support materials is possible.

When you submit your application, you will receive an automated confirmation email with a copy of your submitted application attached. This will be sent to the email you used to register.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your submission has NOT been submitted.

ATTACHMENTS AND SUPPORT DOCUMENTS

You may need to upload/submit attachments to support your application. This is very simple, but requires you to have the documents saved on your computer, or on a storage device.

You need to allow enough time for each file to upload before trying to attach another file. Files can be up to 25MB each; however, we do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.

COMPLETING AN APPLICATION IN A GROUP/TEAM

A number of people can work on an application using the same log in details as long as only one person is working at a time. Ensure you save as you go.
