MORE GRASSROOTS SUPPORT FOR VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES

Grassroots organisations can now apply for the latest tranche of a record $43.2 million funding package to support vulnerable people and multicultural communities across NSW.

 

Minister for Multiculturalism Natalie Ward said community-led grassroots initiatives will be able to share in $3.6 million to provide immediate and essential services. These include food and school products, services to help those experiencing domestic and family violence and seniors facing social isolation, wellbeing checks and community activities such as youth groups.

 

“The NSW Government has responded urgently to support those in need during the pandemic. This is the second round of funding for vulnerable people and multicultural communities delivered through our Empowering and Supporting Local Communities program,” Mrs Ward said.
