NSW government offers funding lifeline for struggling charities

“This targeted and multilayered support package will ease financial pressures for not for profits so that they can focus on continuity of their services”

Charities in New South Wales impacted by COVID can now access much needed funding, with applications open for a $330 million state government support package.

NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the COVID-19 JobSaver Payment expansion means the turnover reduction threshold for charities in the social services and animal welfare sectors has dropped from 30 per cent to 15 per cent.

Charities also have access to Social Sector Support Fund grants and a Workforce Surge Payment, aimed at helping social sector organisations respond to COVID-19 outbreaks that could impact staff.

Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Alister Henskens said NFPs played a pivotal role supporting vulnerable people in the community.  

“This targeted and multilayered support package will ease financial pressures for not for profits so that they can focus on continuity of their services,” Henskens said. 

“Our government is working hard to support the social services sector during this challenging time and this financial package is another example of ways we’re assisting non-government organisations across NSW.”
