Steps to Freedom Grant
If you’ve been released from prison, we may be able to help you get set up in the community with a ‘Steps to Freedom’ grant.
Who can get it
You may be able to get a ‘Steps to Freedom’ grant if:
- you’ve been in prison for 31 days or more and
- have now been released, or released on home detention.
If you’ve been released into a residential care facility, you may be able to get the grant for any costs that aren’t paid for by the facility.
If you have a spouse or partner, they must:
- earn less than $810.15 gross per week
- not have any money or assets worth more than $1,770.44.
