LBT 2022 grants – now open

The Lady Bowen Trust will be providing grants for organisations to provide practical support to enable people who are homeless, who have a history of homelessness, or at risk of homelessness, to transition to stable accommodation that improves 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). 

Approximately $150,000 will be available for distribution with a maximum of $15,000   available per organisation.  Applications will be initially made via Expression of Interest. 

Expressions of Interest must be received by 5pm on Friday 13 May 2022.  Application forms and criteria are available at Now Open – LBT Grants 2022 – closing 13 May or from the Lady Bowen Trust secretariat on 1800 081 698 or email:enquiries@ladybowentrust.org.au. 

All organisations providing services to assist Queenslanders who have experienced, or who are at risk of homelessness, are encouraged to consider submitting an Expression of Interest.  As funds are limited, the Board of Advice has identified priority for funding will be organisations providing services and support to the following groups of people experiencing or at risk of homelessness:

  • Organisations providing assistance to Queenslanders experiencing homelessness, or at risk of homelessness due to the 2022 Severe Weather/ Flood events 
  • Culturally and Linguistically Diverse or Indigenous Queenslanders experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness
  • People experiencing domestic and family violence and who are at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness,
  • Older women  who are experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness.
