Try, Test and Learn Fund update

Grant applications for the latest round of the Try, Test and Learn Fund are open for applications.

The Department of Social Services will accept grant submissions until 28 September 2018 for small-scale trials of innovative approaches to get people at risk of long-term welfare dependence into employment.

DSS will fund projects that target welfare dependency in the following priority groups:

  • Newstart Allowance recipients aged 50 and over
  • Working age migrants and refugees receiving income support
  • Working age carers receiving Carer Payment
  • At-risk young people receiving income support.

Tranche Two of the Try, Test and Learn Fund is an opportunity to identify new approaches that will move people from welfare into work.

Registration is now open for tranche two information sessions in Alice Springs, Darwin, Cairns, Melbourne and Bendigo. Eventbrite is being used to manage attendance of these events, so if you wish to attend, please be sure to register at the below links.
