Community organisations are encouraged to apply for grants of up to $10,000 so they can continue to provide services and support to vulnerable South Australians during this unprecedented time.

A total of $3.35 million has been committed towards COVID-19 Support Grants as part of the State Government's response to the coronavirus pandemic. Funding will be prioritised to support organisations who provide services to vulnerable and disadvantaged South Australians in response to COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Support Grants of up to $10,000 will mean our community organisations can continue to operate, adapting their existing programs or providing new programs and services to meet the  needs of all South Australians, in particular our most vulnerable.

Examples of eligible ways organisations can use their funding include items like IT equipment and software to enable staff and volunteers to work from home, personal protection equipment and website upgrades.

The grants will be available for an initial six-month period and I really encourage any organisation that is eligible and providing important programs and services to South Australians at this time to apply.

The COVID-19 Support Grants temporarily replaces the regular Grants SA program, recognising community need at this time.

Applications close on 30 October 2020. For more information or to apply, see Grants SA.
