Anyone can enter the challenge:


Teams of people, entrepreneurs, community organisations, businesses, local government and anyone else we've forgotten.


we strongly encourage creative teams that bring different perspectives together to develop solutions.


All entries should directly respond to the challenge question. Entries may be for early stage ideas or demonstrations of solutions already in development.

Successful entries will need to be an incorporated body to receive the funds. If you’re not, you should still apply and get in touch, we can help you to find a partner who is!

We will not consider funding solutions just for older people, pre-existing community programs, programs currently running in another state or capital works. For alternative SA grant opportunities see here.

Teams need to be based in South Australia or have solutions developed in South Australia with local knowledge and a local partner.
