As multicultural communities continue to face unique challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NSW Government is providing much needed support through COVID-19 Community Support Grants.
Grants of $5,000 are now 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 close this Thursday, July 15 and you can apply HERE.
