Empowering YOUth Initiatives – Round 2 Grant Funding is coming!

The Australian Government invested $55 million over four years in Empowering YOUth Initiatives (EYI) as part of the Youth Employment Strategy announced in the 2015-16 Budget. EYI seeks new and different approaches to engage vulnerable young people and equip them with the skills they need to gain employment.

Nineteen organisations were funded under EYI Round 1 to support young people aged 15-24 at risk of long-term unemployment.

The Round 2 Grant process for EYI will open shortly and the Department is inviting applications from not-for-profit, non-government organisations. This will also include employment service providers who are not-for-profit organisations.

If you have new or different idea to help vulnerable young people to gain the skills they need to find work, you are encouraged to apply. The Department will consider proposals of up to $5 million.

Stay tuned for more updates.

The Employment Services Purchasing Hotline (espurchasing@employment.gov.au) (the Hotline) is the primary means of contact.
