2019 Granting Round

South Eastern Primary Care (SEPC) Fund is a sub-fund of the Australian Communities Foundation. The Fund was established following the winding up of the South Eastern Health Providers Association (SEPA) in November 2016.

Grants from the SEPC Fund are made to support the primary health care workforce in the South-Eastern region of Melbourne, so they can provide optimum care for the community.

The SEPC Fund will achieve this purpose by providing:

  • Scholarships for primary health care professionals and support staff to undertake education and training (up to $5,000)
  • Grants for organisations to develop and deliver training to primary health care professionals and/or support staff (up to $10,000)
  • Grants for primary health care professionals or primary care organisations to develop and undertake projects within the primary health care setting (up to $10,000)

If you are interested in applying for either an individual scholarship or for an organisational grant please read the Guidelines for Applicants. The Guidelines for Applicants document provides further detail about the grant categories, size of grants, eligibility criteria and the application and assessment process and timelines.

If, after reading through the guidelines, you have any questions about the grants program, please contact Trudy Wyse on (03) 9412 0412 or email consulting@communityfoundation.org.au.
