AUSTRALIA Post has created a new grants program for eligible registered charities and community organisations.

The Our Neighbourhood program has grants of between $1000 and $25,000 on offer for things like education programs, support for communities to better understand changing technologies or help for small businesses to further develop business and management skills.

"Fostering more inclusive communities will be at the heart of Our Neighbourhood. It is our way of ensuring we provide continued support for communities to stay connected, both physically and digitally," said Ahmed Fahour, Australia Post Managing Director and CEO.

Our Neighbourhood will drive positive change in communities by focusing on initiatives that provide people with access to essential products and services - as well as the skills to use these services to connect in both the physical and digital world. The program will also focus on projects which maintain diverse, inclusive workplaces that value the contribution made by people from different backgrounds and neighbourhoods.

"This is an Australia Post first; a truly localised program that will provide people with the financial support, tools and resources that will assist them in building healthier, more vibrant and inclusive communities," Mr Fahour said.

Our Neighbourhood Community Grants are now open for applications and will close on Friday, June 28 at 5pm (AEST).

To apply or to find out more about eligible organisations and selection criteria, go to or pick up an Application Kit at any Australia Post retail outlet.
