Opening soon: 29 Feb 2024

Funding place-based initiatives that will reduce and prevent young people vaping  


While recent vaping legislation in Australia marks significant progress, vaping continues to present a complex and constantly evolving challenge.

That's why we're launching a collective impact approach for vaping:


As part of this, we'll fund, support and amplify localised community-led and informed initiatives for reducing and preventing vaping harm among young people. 


Who can apply?


Victorian councils

How much? Up to $200,000 per project is available for Victorian councils.

What for? To collaborate with local stakeholders and focus on one or more of the following outcomes for young people: 

  • Increased awareness and rejection of vaping.
  • Reduced exposure to vaping products.
  • Enhanced community capability to address vaping.  

Through this funding, you'll be part of our collective impact approach and contribute to the emerging evidence base. You will also gain access to a support network, shared learnings, and all the essential resources for the success of your project. 

Place-based partnerships with Local Public Health Units, Community Health and other councils working together on an idea/project is encouraged.
