Online Safety Grants Program
The Online Safety Grants Program, led by eSafety, is part of the Australian Government’s commitment to keeping children and young people safe online.
Grants of between $80,000 and $1 million are available to non-government organisations (NGOs) registered as a not-for-profit charitable organisation with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
The program supports the delivery of online safety education to children, young people and their communities, or training to those who work with them.
A total of $9 million is available over the life of the program, allocated in rounds in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
Find out more about the successful Round 1 applicants and their projects.
Round 2 is now closed
Successful Round 2 projects will be published on our website and the GrantConnect website in the coming months.

- promote and increase the positive and safe use of digital technologies in at-risk communities, via improvements in service delivery
- contribute to driving diversity and inclusion online through resources for at-risk communities
- encourage help seeking behaviours and provide clear pathways for assistance for children and young people who are experiencing some form of online harm
- create a culture within schools and communities where safe online behaviours among children and young people become routine

- embed Safety by Design principles in the development of solutions and programs, where appropriate.
