Men's Shed Program

Men's sheds provide a place for men to get together, work on common projects and contribute to their community.

The Men's Shed Program provides grants for the construction of new sheds and the refurbishment of existing sheds.

Ongoing funding of $1 million per annum underpins the Men's Shed Program. This funding is allocated across:

  • Building and refurbishing men’s sheds
  • Strengthening the sustainability of men's sheds through the Victorian Men’s Shed Association.

Applications closed 12 pm Tuesday 23 July 2019.

Funding announcements and notifications are expected to occur in October 2019.
