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 outcomes from completed Round 1 projects as well the successful Round 2 recipients.

    Round 3 is now closed

    Applications for the final round of the Online Safety Grants Program closed at 5.00 pm (AEST) Monday 16 May 2022.

    Successful Round 3 projects will be published on our website and the GrantConnect website in coming months.
