The Financial Literacy Australia (FLA) Grants program supports not-for-profit organisations to advance financial literacy in Australia.
In 2016, FLA allocated $1.3 million in grants, bring total grants to $4.4 million. The kinds of projects funded include:
- experimenting with an innovative financial literacy program and sharing the results
- evaluating an existing program to measure its impact and see how it can be improved
- expanding an existing program with demonstrated results so that it reaches more people
- practical research that will make a real difference
We are keen to support more projects like these.
We have had grants rounds in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The timing of the 2017 grants round has not yet been finalised.
Subscribe to our newsletter to get notification of future grants rounds.

FLA initiated projects
As well as the ‘applicant initiated’ projects mentioned above, FLA may fund projects that it initiates itself. FLA may directly approach organisations about possible projects, or call for proposals to address a specific issue. These will be reported in the FLA newsletter (see the sign-up form at the bottom of this page).
