The purpose of the grant opportunity is to improve awareness and understanding of lung conditions for population groups considered to be at an ‘increased risk’ of experiencing poor lung health in Australia. These include, but not limited to: asthmatics, those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, cystic fibrosis, smokers, people with allergies, people exposed to asbestos and/or inflammatory pollutants (i.e. those in occupations such as mining, manufacturing, engineered stone working and building).

The grant strongly aligns with the priorities and recommendations outlined in the National Strategic Action Plan for Lung Conditions (the Action Plan), launched by the Australian Government on 21 February 2019.

The objectives of the grant opportunity are to support a number of recommended activities from the Action Plan, including:

• Delivering awareness and education campaigns to improve knowledge of occupational hazards that affect the lungs and to promote safe workplaces;
• Delivering education to parents, carers and health professionals to address chronic cough, particularly in high risk populations including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children; and
• Delivering awareness and education campaigns on the benefits of immunisation to increase uptake in high-risk populations (page 11 of the Action Plan).


To be eligible you must satisfy the criteria in section 4.1 of the grant opportunity guidelines.
