National Conference 2023 Subsidy Application

About the subsidy application process 

Community Legal Centres Australia is able to offer a limited number of subsidies to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers and workers from regional, rural, remote and very remote (RRRR) centres with ticket, travel and accommodation costs for the National Community Legal Centres Conference 2023 in nipaluna / Hobart. 

Applications close at 12pm on Monday 6 February 2023, and all applicants will be notified of the outcome the following week. 
All eligible subsidy applicants will be able to buy conference tickets at early bird rates, even if their application is unsuccessful. 

Please note: 

  • Subsidies are only available to: 
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers 
- Workers from RRRR centres 
- Centres that are full members of their state or territory association. 
 
  • Centres can use one form to apply for subsidies for more than one worker within their Centre. 
  • Community Legal Centres Australia will set up a Subsidy Determination Committee to review subsidy applications and allocate available funds to applicants. This committee will include the Community Legal Centres Australia Capacity Building Manager and Capacity Building Coordinator, members of the 2023 Conference Advisory Group who volunteer to be on the panel and possibly members of a state peak body. 
  • The Subsidy Determination Committee will assess applications using the following criteria: 
- whether the applicant/centre meets the eligibility criteria 
- the total number of people / centres who apply 
- the total amount of sponsorship funds available for subsidies 
- whether the applicant / centre has received a subsidy in previous years 
- the number of applicants per centre 
- total centre income for the 2021-22 financial year 
- a fair and meaningful division of the subsidy pool across the applicants. 
 
  • Community Legal Centres Australia will only share the information you include in your application with members of the National Conference 2023 Subsidy Determination Committee.
