Be Connected grant program

Good Things Foundation Australia offers a range of digital inclusion grants to support organisations to close the digital divide in their community. Be Connected program grants aim to support older people (over 50's) in Australia to improve their digital skills, safety and confidence. There is a range of funding available to community organisations to support older people in their communities to embrace digital technology, including grants for digital skills program delivery, community events, digital mentor training and setting up loan digital device programs.

Grants are available to organisations registered as part of Good Things Foundation Australia's Be Connected Network.
