Multicultural community organisations can apply for grants which support grassroots projects providing immediate relief in response to the current COVID-19 restrictions.
Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said up to $250,000 is available for multicultural community organisations across NSW as part of the Multicultural NSW Stronger Together Grants program.
“We continue to navigate the effects of the pandemic on our community and recognise the vital role our multicultural organisations play to ensure people have access to support and care in this difficult time,” Mr Singh said.
“There are many outstanding organisations and volunteers on the Coffs Coast who are working tirelessly to provide emergency relief in response to the pandemic.
“I encourage all eligible organisations in our community to apply for this round of support grants.”
Minister for Multiculturalism Natalie Ward said up to 50 grants of up to $5,000 for grassroots multicultural community projects are available in NSW.
“We know the pandemic and COVID-19 restrictions continue to present challenges for our community, with many people continuing to face hardship,” Mrs Ward said.
“These grants will provide immediate relief to support our multicultural community organisations who know the needs of our communities best and how to respond to them.”
Funded projects could support the provision of emergency food relief and grassroots initiatives responding to social isolation.
Grant applications are now open and can be submitted until 5pm Thursday 15 July.
