Emergency Grants
  • Last updated:
  • 31 Aug 2021

These grants are for not-for-profit community organisations to apply for up to $3,000 to fund projects that have arisen as a consequence of failure, damage or loss of essential equipment or infrastructure due to unforeseen circumstances. The failure must be deemed to be an emergency and significantly impact on the organisations ability to continue to operate. Projects that are covered by insurance are not eligible.

During a declared Disaster Situation, such as COVID-19, Emergency Grants may assist where not-for-profit organisations:

  • have costs that are having a significant impact on the organisation's ability to continue to operate
  • have costs that are meeting the significant community need created by the disaster
  • are experiencing financial hardship, in which case, operational expenditure will be eligible
