National Shed Development Programme Round 16 grants available for 2018 Men’s Health Week

Round 16 of the Australian Government National Shed Development Programme opens Monday 30 October, with applicants encouraged to apply for grants to run health events during Men’s Health Week next year (11 – 17 June 2018).

Applications are available across three categories, with a priority focus on Category 3: Health Improvement Activities in preparation for next year’s Men’s Health Week. Under Category 3, applicants can apply for up to $5,000 for assistance with costs incurred for:

  • The delivery of a Spanner in the Works? health check programme
  • The delivery and participation in activities that advance the health and wellbeing of shed members (for example, health seminars, health-related guest speakers, health information sessions)
  • Registration, transport and accommodation costs for Men’s Shed members to attend health focused events and educations programs
  • Planning and delivery of a regional men’s health event
  • The purchase of health resources (for example, books, CDs)


Since 2010 the Australian Men’s Shed Association has distributed almost $4 million through the National Shed Development Programme providing direct financial assistance to new and existing Men’s Sheds.

The most recent funding round of the NSDP (Round 15) delivered $400,000 to 130 successful grant applications from Men’s Sheds and Men’s Shed organisations across the country. Click here to read about Round 15 outcomes.

Round 16 aims to support the delivery of shed activities and programs and improve facilities and the sustainability of Men’s Sheds in Australia, with a key focus on health and wellbeing activities for Men’s Shed members and those planned for 2018 Men’s Health Week.

OPENS Monday 30 October 2017

The NSDP is open for six weeks and all Men’s Sheds and organisations supporting Men’s Sheds across Australia, regardless of association membership, are eligible to apply.
