Funding available to help South Australian communities

Funds of up to $10,000 are currently being offered to eligible community organisations through Grants SA.

State Minister for Human Services Michelle Lensink said the grants, totalling $3 million, will be awarded to groups which support communities experiencing disadvantages through delivery of programs and services.

"We want to support community organisations who support others in our community and encourage those who have innovative ideas and are focused on addressing things like cost of living concerns, preventing domestic, family and sexual violence and promoting disability inclusion," she said.

Funds can be used for one-off programs or services, community facility upgrades, or vehicles.

Applications for the grants close on November 19, 2019. For more information visit www.dhs.sa.gov.au/GrantsSA or call 1300 650 985.
