This round opens on 18 July closing on 17 February 2023. We will have an interim assessment with a cut off point for applications of 30 September 2022.

If you know of any organisations who might benefit from an employer grant we’d be happy to speak with them. We welcome all eligible applications and hope to have several in each of our four 26TEN Communities – Launceston Northern Suburbs, Clarence Plains, Glenorchy, Huon Valley.

Join businesses who are benefiting from building literacy and numeracy skills in their workplaces such as Forager Foods, Huon Aquaculture, Duggans Construction, The Huon Valley Council and many more!

Something new! Get ready grants
This small grant is like a stepping stone. $5 000 for businesses who’ve not been involved with our grants before and don’t know where to start. With their funding, they’ll be able to employ one of our Adult Literacy Skills Officers to help them put together an application for the full ($50 000) funding.
