The Financial Literacy Australia (FLA) Grants program supports not-for-profit organisations to advance financial literacy in Australia.
This year, FLA will allocate about $2 million in our “open grants” program. Potential projects include:
- innovation (e.g. pilots with potential to be scaled-up after evaluation)
- program evaluation (e.g. program improvement, outcome assessment)
- scaling-up existing programs (e.g. after evaluation, to reach a larger audience)
- product development (e.g. learning content, testing of educational products)
- research that will improve future financial literacy programs (e.g. key issues in behavioural change, effective communication)

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).
