Building Digital Skills grant

Funding for your digital literacy program

Round 23 closes on 30 April 2021.


Apply for a grant to start up or expand your digital skills program.

The Building Digital Skills grant is now available to all Network Partners, including those who are new to the Be Connected Network and have not yet been awarded a grant.

Building Digital Skills grants help organisations to start up and continue delivering their Be Connected digital literacy programs.

The aim of the Building Digital Skills grants program is to enable organisations to support older Australians 50+ through free face-to-face contact (if feasible), either one-on-one or in small groups, to develop their digital skills and confidence, utilising the learning courses available on the Be Connected Learning site.

Upgrading resources to expand your program


“Without the grant funding we would not be able to afford the supplies to push our students to want to try and learn new things.”

Susan, Digital Mentor at Elermore Glen Retirement Village.
