Previous Funding

2018/2019 Funding is now closed.

For the 2018/2019 financial year, applications were welcomed for a general fund which targeted key Ministerial priorities across four different funding streams; Youth Development Programmes and Services, Youth Development Opportunity for Young People, Youth Enterprise Programmes and Services, and Youth Enterprise Opportunity for Young People. Applications closed on 02 July 2018.

292 applications were received, totalling $14,566,206 in requests for funding. All applications were assessed by panels of five people. Each panel included at least one young person and one person working in the youth development sector. Panels made recommendations based on the published criteria and panel recommendations were moderated to ensure a fair and transparent process.

With limited funds to distribute, MYD was able to support around a quarter of applications received. A total of $1,693,292 funding was approved for 75 initiatives listed in the downloadable table below.
