Social Enterprise Grants – latest recipients & open applications

Posted 25 May 2023

IBA, with support from the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, launched a new grant earlier this year (see the IBA Media Release) to support female-led Social Enterprises to deliver economic empowerment programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. The quantity of applications was impressive, and we’re excited to announce the first round of successful applicants, as well as note the latest opening of new applications.

The Social Enterprise Grant program will deliver $2.7 million of grant funding in 2023 through partnerships with Australian Social Enterprises who are, or work with, First Nations women in business. Applicants can apply for partnerships from $50,000 and up to $200,000 (excl GST).

Eligible Australian female-led Social Enterprises are invited to apply (please note: applications are open until 30 August 2023 or until funding is exhausted).
