South Australian Treasurer Stephen Mullighan handed down his first budget on June 2, 2022.

Key highlights in the 2022–23 budget for community groups and economy recovery include:

  • $100 million for a new Economic Recovery Fund to provide business grants that promote economic growth and development opportunities in South Australia
  • $68.1 million over four years to fund local community infrastructure projects
  • $16 million to fund multicultural events and initiatives
  • $8 million over four years to boost funding to artists and arts organisations
  • $7.5 million for the Port Pirie Greening program
  • $7.5 million for child protection grants, including $4 million for post-care support and carer advocacy services, and $1.8 million for a Child and Young Person's Visitor Scheme in residential care
  • $3.3 million over two years in grants to support live music in small venues and larger scale events and festivals, and $1 million in 2022–23 to provide $5000 grants to venues to undertake minor upgrades
  • $2 million to reinstate the Regional Capability Community Fund grant program for equipment to create farm firefighting units
  • $1 million in grants for women’s and men’s sheds.

It's still unclear when or how this money will trickle down to not-for-profits and community groups, but we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for grant updates relevant to Funding Centre members.

In the meantime, log in to your Funding Centre account and sign up for alerts to be among the first to know where the money is flowing, and to search for and manage your grant applications using the dashboard tool.
