2021 LBT grants now open

The Lady Bowen Trust will be determining grants for organisations so that practical and meaningful support is provided, enabling people who are homeless, or who have a history of homelessness to transition to stable accommodation and improve their circumstances and personal well being. Grants will not be provided for crisis or emergency accommodation (as other funding sources are available for this purpose).

Up to 10 grants of up to $15,000 per organisation are available in the 2021 Lady Bowen Trust grant round.  Applications will be initially made via Expression of Interest.  Further information may be requested from short-listed organisations.

Organisations that provide services and support to the following groups of people experiencing or at risk of homelessness are strongly encouraged to apply:  

  • Queenslanders impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • Queenslanders in rural and regional locations
  • People who have experienced domestic or family violence
  • Older women.

The Lady Bowen Trust regrets that it receives more applications that it is able to fund.  Organisations should not enter into commitments with the expectation of receiving funding from the Lady Bowen Trust.

Expressions of Interest must be submitted on the attached form LBT Grant – EOI guidelines – final 21 04 2021 and accompanied by the attached pre- completed funding agreement LBT-funding-agreement-final 21 04 2021 and must be received by 5pm on Wednesday 5 May 2021.
