A total of 37 South Australian community organisations have shared more than $550,000 in State Government funding to support some of the most disadvantaged people in the community.
Minister for Communities and Social Inclusion Tony Piccolo says a total of $558,730 has been granted to community projects across the State in the latest round of the Community Benefit SA program.
"The one-off grants provided under this program are used by organisations to help communities become more connected, independent and resilient," Mr Piccolo said.
"The projects are designed to assist with community infrastructure, and to create communities which are inclusive and improve the life management skills of disadvantaged families and individuals.
"The program aims to improve the quality of life for some of the most disadvantaged people in the community.
"Those who directly benefit from this funding include refugees, carers, older people, Aboriginal people, people with disability and people with mental health issues."
