The primary objective of the COVID-19 Community Reactivation is to support existing community groups that make a positive contribution to the wellbeing of our region and whom have been adversely affected by restrictions imposed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Recognising that the impacts vary widely, eligible groups are able to apply for up to $1,000 to fund a wide range of activities that aim to counteract the negative impacts of the pandemic, including loss of income, increased social isolation and reduced community wellbeing.
The COVID-19 Community Reactivation Grant is a flexible funding program designed to provide assistance where it is most needed. This grant can support groups to stay afloat and adapt while restrictions are still in place or take steps towards being operational again once restrictions have eased and group activities can resume. Eligible requests include assistance with utilities payments, or community projects that aim to enhance quality of life by reducing social isolation and increasing community connection and wellbeing.
Applications are now open and will be accepted and assessed on an ongoing basis until funds are exhausted.
