Seeding Grants 2017

Seeding Grants 2017

The Community Mental Health Drug and Alcohol Research Network (CMHDARN) invites member organisations from the Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC) and the Network of Alcohol and Other Drugs Agencies (NADA) to apply for the CMHDARN Seeding Grants.

The CMHDARN Research Seeding Grants provide community based mental health and/or alcohol and other drugs (AOD) organisations (NGOs) with access to one-off grants of up to $10,000 (excluding GST) to build their capacity to undertake research (i.e. to become ‘research ready’).

The grants are intended to support organisations to develop their research methodology and to identify suitable academic and/or other project partners to help carry out the research. Previous recipients used funding to develop research questions, explore emerging practice issues, and undertake preparatory work, including completion of literature reviews, to apply for larger research funding.


All applicants must address the eligibility and selection criteria in their Expression of Interest (EOI) using the attached form. Completed EOI forms are to be emailed to by COB Friday 9 June 2017.
