The Be Connected program will be supporting local organisations to help older Australians learn the internet basics through access to a range of small grants available between October 2017 - June 2020.
These grants will provide small 'activation grants' for organisations joining the Be Connected Network. They are likely to be around $1500 per local organisation and will be based on a short grant application and approval process. Additional digital literacy grants may also be available as the program develops; these will be outcomes-focused grants.
More information about the grants will be available in the run up to the beginning of Be Connected in early October, so keep an eye out.
