The COVID-19 Community Support Grants application deadline has been EXTENDED until 5PM Friday 16th July 2021. These grants provide much needed support to multicultural communities who continue to face unique challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Grants of $5,000 are available for organisations providing essential services to culturally and linguistically diverse groups.
This funding aims to support a broad range of culturally, linguistically, and religiously diverse stakeholders who are looking for ways to continue or start community programs to provide food, transport and language support to vulnerable cohorts.
Applications must address how they are providing one of the following:
1) Immediate community care support – to provide culturally appropriate care to vulnerable and isolated people. This includes programs that focus on seniors, mental health and building community connection.
2) Overcoming language barriers – to enable volunteer and charitable organisations to overcome language and cultural barriers to connect with essential support services available to the community during COVID-19.
Grants now close this Friday 16 July.
