The words 'Human Rights' in green

Amnesty International Australia’s Human Rights Innovation Fund allows anyone interested in promoting and defending human rights direct access to funding to support new, innovative, creative initiatives. The fund's objectives are to foster grassroots community activism, engage and empower a diversity of people to build networks and promote the growth of a human rights constituency, acknowledge the initiatives and endeavours of the human rights movement; and develop partnerships with other organisations. 

Projects must have a demonstrable human rights impact and the potential to advance one or more the fund’s objectives.

Who can apply?
Anyone can apply  individuals, local action groups, community groups or networks and organisations from any Australian State or Territory.

Closing dates
Three application rounds will take place over the rest of 2017. Applications must be received by the closing dates:

  • 31 May
  • 31 August
  • 30 November
