The Community Capability Trust (CCT) Approach

From FY22 onwards, CCT has replaced the VWO-Charities Capability Fund (VCF)'s Organisational Development Grant (ODG)& Innovation & Productivity Grant (IPG) to support the social service sector’s capability and capacity-building needs with a bigger budget and wider coverage, as well as enable funding of new capability areas.
