Our focus for 2018-19

We were particularly looking for projects that included one or more of the following:

  • new and innovative activities
  • facilitate new community partnerships
  • consider and work with the program of events planned for Nauru's 50th Anniversary of Independence
  • target women and/or people with a disability


The next funding round for 2018-19 will open in September 2018. Please check this website for updates closer to this time.
