eSafety Commissioner: Online Safety Grants Program Round 2


The eSafety Commissioner’s Online Safety Grants Program (OSGP) is part of the Australian Government’s commitment to keeping children and young people safe online. 

Grant funding of between $80,000 and $1 million is available to assist non-government organisations (NGOs) deliver online safety education to children, young people and their communities, or training to those who work with them. 

$9 million in grant funding has been allocated across three rounds over 2020 to 2022. Up to $4.5m will be allocated under Round 2, which will open on 27 April 2021.

This is an open competitive grants program for NGOs registered as not-for-profit charitable organisations with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission.

We are seeking applications from NGOs that can demonstrate an ability to use evidence-based research and best practice in online safety education to develop services, resources and products that provide new solutions for improving online safety. These can be:

  • for use in schools and other places of learning
  • designed for parents and carers, communities or support workers 
  • focused on at-risk communities
  • aimed at scaling up new services, resources or products.


Applications close 5pm, 25th May 2021.
