Cancer Australia is inviting community organisations and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations to apply for funding under the Supporting people with cancer Grant Initiative (SPWC).

For the first time, investment through the SPWC is guided by the Australian Cancer Plan (the Plan) strategic objectives and aligns with achieving equity in cancer outcome for all Australians.The purpose of the SPWC Round 15 is to support people affected by cancer through actions to improve equity in cancer outcomes and experiences.

Grants must support at least one or more of the priority populations groups identified in the Plan and/or demonstrate direct improvements in outcomes for people whose outcomes are inequitable, for example, people impacted by rare or less common cancers with poor outcomes. 

The minimum grant amount is $40,000 (GST excl) for a one-year project, the maximum grant amount is $120,000 (GST excl) for a three-year project.
