With this year’s annual HEY Grants round opening on 15 September, we’re hosting a grant-writing information session to help your application be the best it can be.

HEY Grants are an annual small grant round for projects and initiatives that support LGBTIQA+ young people’s mental health and wellbeing. This is the thirteenth year of the Grants.

What to expect

This session will cover:

  • Learn what the grants are and how they work
  • Hear from previously successful recipients about their experiences of the entire HEY Grants process, and get their grant writing tips
  • Ask the HEY team your questions directly

This info session will focus on young applicants, with two previous rural HEY Grant recipients presenting: Rah (they/them) and Rose (she/her).

Who should attend

Any organisation or individual running a project designed to support LGBTIQA+ young people in Victoria is welcome to attend.

One of the grant categories is for youth-led projects, and we recognise that many young people do not have grant-writing experience, so this information session will be designed to be accessible to you.

Our work takes place through the lands of the Aboriginal nations within Victoria and we pay our respects to their Elders past and present. Bunjil’s lore states that those who walk on this land must care for the Country and waterways as well as care for the children and young people. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
