The Australian Government Department of Health, National Shed Development Program administered by the Australian Men’s Shed Association - round 21 is now open.

The program provides direct financial assistance to:

  • Assist to address the health and wellbeing of Shed members.
  • Support health improvements through a focus on the social determinants of health through national activities in relation to key population groups.
  • Deliver appropriate activities and programs.
  • Improve facilities and the sustainability of Men’s Sheds across Australia.

Round 21 will specifically prioritise applications requesting events, Shed improvements and equipment with a strong health, well-being or safety emphasis, in acknowledgement of the impact of COVID-19 and the needs of Sheds in the recovery period (and beyond).

  • Category 1: Health and Well-being Events (max $8,000)
  • Category 2: Shed Improvements (max $8,000)
