The NSW Government’s Recovery Boost Program provides grants of up to $50,000 to fund innovative mental health projects that support employees to recover at work and reduce mental health stigma. Anyone can apply, as long as you have an ABN or ACN and have a project that benefits NSW workplaces. This includes:

  • businesses and industry groups
  • not-for-profit and non-government organisations
  • universities and research institutions
  • government agencies and local councils

The program is particularly interested in proposals from:

  • people with lived experience of workplace mental health recovery
  • regional and remote businesses
  • aboriginal people and businesses
  • culturally and linguistically diverse communities (CALD)
  • youth networks and communities
  • small and micro businesses

The program is looking to fund mental health projects that:

  • create greater opportunities for workers to recover at work, or return to work sooner
  • broaden the evidence base of what works, so that other workplaces can benefit from what your project learns and accomplishes
  • support workers in a workplace in a new ‘innovative’ way
  • encourage individuals to seek early support when they are experiencing mental health issues
  • break down mental health stigma and create greater awareness of the importance of mental health at work.

Expressions of Interest close: 2 August 2021. Successful Expressions of Interest will be notified 11 August 2021.
