Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) Grants Program

The 2018 Grant Program is Now Open

The Tasmanian Government provides grants through the program to assist community organisations and tertiary institutions to:

  • Increase the number of Tasmanians who are accepting of diversity;
  • Improve resilience and capacity in the LGBTI community;
  • Foster inclusion, respect and dignity for LGBTI Tasmanians; and
  • Enhance access to services and participation for LGBTI Tasmanians.

Priority will be given to projects or research that develop, or contribute to the development of:

  • Research issues affecting the LGBTI community in Tasmania, including the incidence of discrimination, abuse, harassment, and family violence.
  • Develop resources or strategies to:
    • increase community awareness about the issues and needs of the LGBTI Tasmanians; or
    • reduce or prevent discrimination, vilification and harassment of LGBTI Tasmanians.
  • Develop resilience, capacity and confidence of LGBTI Tasmanians, for example:
    • encourage and support LGBTI Tasmanians to report incidents of violence, crime and anti-social behaviour;
    • increase participation of LGBTI Tasmanians in their community.
  • Address gaps in the current service system that prevent LGBTI people from being able to access services and address issues related to their sexuality or gender.
  • Promote awareness of LGBTI issues and needs within workplaces in Tasmania.
  • Celebrate diversity and promote inclusion of LGBTI Tasmanians within the wider community, particularly in rural and regional communities in Tasmania.  Any event funded under this priority area must produce a related resource/s that is/are available and of use to the LGBTI and wider community.
