Description:

The Australian Government is inviting organisations via an open process to apply to deliver services under Portfolio Budget Statement Outcome 2, Program 2.1: Families and Communities until 30 June 2024.

This grant will fund a ‘Foundation Partner’ to deliver the first phase of work required to inform the establishment of a National Centre for Place-Based Collaboration (Nexus Centre).

The Nexus Centre is envisaged to be an independent, non-government entity that will work with and across governments, communities and other stakeholders around Australia to amplify the effects of existing and emerging place-based initiatives.

Initial funding of $2.5 million is available to 30 June 2024 to a single provider or consortium to:

  • bring in key leaders across relevant sectors and governments who can drive the Nexus Centre’s agenda through investment and partnerships
  • build consensus for, and design, a fully operational Nexus Centre
  • deliver a range of foundational infrastructure activities
  • develop arrangements for the transition to a longer-term funding base and governance structure to ensure the Centre’s longevity beyond 30 June 2024.
