Qantas Regional Grants 2023
The Qantas Regional Grants program is back, offering $10 million in support over five years to Australian-based communities and projects that are looking to benefit our country's regional areas.
About the program
Since 1920 when Qantas was founded in outback Queensland, we’ve looked to strengthen Australia’s regional communities, drive local economic activity, and support jobs.
In 2019, we launched the Qantas Regional Grants program to help these communities sustain brighter futures by providing financial, flight and marketing support to charities, organisations, causes, projects and individuals over a five-year period.
Applications open 21 February and close 10 May 2023.

If you experience any issues with applying, email the Qantas Regional Grants team.
