Defence Member and Family Support (DMFS) is a Branch of the Commonwealth Department of Defence designed to support Australian Defence Force Members and their families through a broad range of program and services.

Strengthening Defence families and community is an important focus for DMFS. DMFS are pleased to announce the availability of grant funding to support not-for-profit organisations in their efforts to enhance the capacity of military families and communities to foster resilience and effectively manage the challenges associated with the military lifestyle. The purpose of this grant is to fund innovative projects that empower military families and their communities to develop strong coping mechanisms, foster a supportive environment, and promote overall well-being.

DMFS offers Defence Community Grants for not-for-profit (NFP) organisations, and targeted grant opportunities for Defence Community Groups (DCG). Grants are available annually and may be provided across multiple years. Eligible NFPs can apply for a grant each year.

Grants support the delivery of programs and services to help current serving ADF families to navigate the challenges and opportunities of military life such as mobility and absence, foster a sense of community and develop resilience.
