Introduction

2022 Improving 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.
