Local not-for-profits will benefit from a funding boost to ease financial pressure and help them recover from impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the NSW Government’s Social Sector Support Fund is providing not-for-profit organisations with grants of between $10,000 and $200,000.
“The social services sector has worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to support people doing it tough, and this funding will provide our frontline organisations with a hand-up,” Ms Cooke said.
“The funding will support not-for-profits who have seen a decline in their revenue and can be used to assist with brokering services and support for clients.”
Local organisations receiving funding include:
- Cowra Information and Neighbourhood Centre Incorporated – $150,000
- The Farm in Galong – $100,000
The grants support organisations which did not receive JobSaver or JobSaver Not-For-Profit and are working across child and family services, domestic violence, homelessness, health, disability and animal welfare sectors.
