Grant opportunity – Building Community Vaccination Awareness EOI

APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED – New closing date 12pm Friday 16 December 2022.

Central and Eastern Sydney PHN is offering community organisations supporting individuals living in the region an exciting opportunity to curate a program to support the needs of their communities.

The Building Community Vaccination Awareness program aims to expand awareness of the importance of vaccination in vulnerable communities. The aim is to build the capacity of community driven organisations to equip their communities with the necessary knowledge to make an informed decision about vaccination.

Increasing vaccination coverage rates will contribute to improved health outcomes for people while also reducing unnecessary utilisation of health services, due to less likelihood of people seeking treatment for vaccine preventable diseases.

The objectives of this initiative are to:

  • protect those most vulnerable from COVID-19 and other vaccine preventable diseases;
  • empower community by increasing awareness and uptake of recommended COVID-19 vaccination in communities that are vulnerable to COVID-19 infection, due to low vaccination coverage rates;
  • build partnerships with local agencies and community groups to optimise individual and community uptake of vaccination.

 There are two funding options in this EOI. Applicants may seek funding for either:

  • $100,000 (excluding GST)
  •  $5,000 (excluding GST)

The timeframe for the delivery of activities to meet program objectives is January 2023 to 30 June 2023.
