Funding Injection for the Charity Sector
The Morrison Government has announced that it is providing an immediate $100 million funding injection to more than 300 charities and community organisations to support Australians as a result of the coronavirus economic downturn.
The funding will be shared across a range of organisations with the priorities including boosting support and change service delivery methods to comply with social distancing guidelines, delivering emergency relief and some casework support to people facing significant vulnerabilities, secure food supplies, transport options and required workforce for those in need, provide additional financial counselling services and allow access to safe, affordable financial products through the No Interest Loans Scheme.
The Government will continue to work with the sector to monitor the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and allocate a further $100 million over the next six months to where it is most needed.
