The Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) is administering the $50 million Social Sector Support Fund (Support Fund).

The Support Fund’s Open Applications grant will help organisations to remain viable and meet increased demand for services during COVID-19 outbreaks and recovery.

Applications close at 11:59 pm Sunday 28 November.

Open Applications are being accepted from charities and NFPs, whether contracted by DCJ or not.

The grant payment is designed to support the medium-term service needs of charities and NFPs, to help to ensure their viability, and maintain diversity in the social, health, disability and animal welfare sectors.

  • a registered charity or not-for-profit
  • providing social, health, disability or animal welfare services in NSW
  • not currently receiving JobSaver or JobSaver for Not-for-Profit
  • have the capacity to expend the grant by 30 April 2022.
