For young Australians, 2020 has been a tough year. The impact of the Australian bushfires, COVID-19 pandemic, and the ongoing challenges with employment, mental health, and transportation have had a profound and disproportionate impact on their lives.
The Youth Action Project Grant Scheme (YAPGS), an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health and FYA, will respond to this hardship by providing grants between $5,000 and $20,000 (a total of up to $950K inc. GST) to projects that support young people (15-24 years) as they navigate and recover from this period. 

Thank you for your interest in the Youth Action Project Grant Scheme, an initiative of FYA and the Australian Government Department of Health.
