Social Sector Support Fund

Grants for eligible charities and not-for-profits (NFPs) in the social, health, disability and animal welfare service sectors in NSW. The Support Fund is targeted at organisations where COVID-19 has led to either increased demand for services, reduced revenue or disrupted staffing.

Overview

DCJ is administering the $50 million Social Sector Support Fund. It’s part of the $200 million support package for not-for profits announced by the NSW Government in August 2021.

The Support Fund is for eligible charities and NFPs in the social, health, disability and animal welfare service sectors in NSW.

It aims to help these organisations 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 JobSaver or JobSaver for Not-for-Profit.

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.
