Community Engagement Grants Program

Our Community Engagement Grants Program (CEG Program) is an open competitive grant program that provides funding to not-for-profit organisations. The CEG Program helps deliver services that are separate and in addition to the FWO’s statutory functions.


The CEG Program started on 1 January 2017 and provides funding to organisations undertaking a range of activities, projects or programs of work, which include: 

  • legal advice sessions
  • community education
  • telephone or face to face advisory services
  • case work services.

All grant-funded activities must involve the provision of professional advice, information or assistance to people within the federal workplace relations system about the operation of Commonwealth workplace laws, particularly the Fair Work Act 2009.

We received a high number of quality applications for both rounds of the grants.
