The NSW Government is providing much needed support through COVID-19 Community Support Grants for multicultural communities who are continuing to face unique challenges because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Grants of $5,000 are now available for organisations providing essential services to culturally and linguistically diverse groups.

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 are open until Thursday 15 July.
