Grants of up to $10,000 are now available for South Australian not-for-profit organisations looking to improve community participation, social and emotional wellbeing, and quality of life for South Australians.
The grants can help community organisations, including Aboriginal community-controlled organisations, to offer expanded programs, projects and facilities, in turn reducing social isolation and supporting community wellbeing.
The grants can be used to improve an area of service or a facility by making it possible to buy new equipment, resources, supplies or infrastructure that will enhance activities, programs and facilities.
Previous successful applicants have included Surf Life Saving SA for an aquatics program to help Ukrainian refugees settle into life in SA, and Yarredi Services for a kitchen upgrade, plus painting, tiling and floor coverings in their community program delivery space.
Other examples of successful applications include upgrades to bathrooms, establishing community gardens, installing access ramps or air conditioning to community spaces or upgrading furniture to include more shared and inclusive spaces in community meeting places.
The Grants SA 2022-2023 Minor Round is open now, with applications closing at 3 pm on Thursday 25 May 2023. Funding guidelines and information on how to submit applications are available at https://dhs.sa.gov.au/services/community-grants/available-grants/2022-23-minor-grants-round
