Social Sector Support Fund

Funder:  NSW – Communities & Justice

Grant Background:  The Support Fund aims to help eligible charities and not-for-profits (NFPs) in the social, health, disability and animal welfare service sectors to:

  • continue to deliver services to the community amid increased demand during COVID-19 outbreaks and as we come out of lockdowns
  • retain their workforce and address staffing needs over the remainder of 2021.

The Support Fund is targeted at organisations where COVID-19 has led to either increased demand for services, reduced revenue or disrupted staffing, and the organisation isn’t receiving either.

Department of Communities & Justice (DCJ) will deliver Support Fund grants flexibly to ensure charities and NFPs are supported through COVID-19 restrictions and recovery, and can continue to provide services to vulnerable people and communities in NSW.

$ Available: Various grants are available. Check the Guidelines to see which category applies to your organisation.

Eligibility:  Your organisation is eligible for a Workforce Contingency payment if you meet all of the following criteria; you’re:

  • a charity or not-for-profit
  • not receiving JobSaver or JobSaver for Not-for-Profit.
  • currently contracted by DCJ to deliver funded services
  • contracted by DCJ to provide Permanency Support Program, Out-of-Home Care Contracted Care, Specialist Homelessness Services, or any DCJ contract including face-to-face and high-contact case management services.
