Are you a Greek organisation in NSW? You might be eligible for this grant

·

Multicultural community organisations are encouraged to apply for over $500,000 in funding to provide immediate assistance for basic necessities like food, transport and language support for vulnerable people.

Acting Minister for Multiculturalism Geoff Lee said the COVID-19 Community Support Grants program will provide critical support.

“The COVID-19 pandemic and measures to control its spread have presented significant challenges to our multicultural communities,” Mr Lee said.

“The NSW Government will provide urgent support to communities in crisis through this quick response grants program.”

NSW organisations that prioritise immediate community care support are being invited to apply.

“Strong communities support each other through challenges. This funding will enable dedicated and committed individuals to continue to help the most vulnerable,” Mr Lee said.

“We have all heard great stories over the past few months about incredible communities assisting and helping where they can and that’s what makes NSW great.”

While this announcement was welcomed by NSW Labor Leader Jodi McKay this afternoon, she says the Government’s grant package was still “too little too late.”

“NSW is now officially in recession and the promise of this help comes months too late. Our multicultural community groups have been feeding people since the pandemic began – and we should thank them from the bottom of our hearts,” Ms McKay said.

Applications are now open and close 9am, 13 June 2020.
