South Australian Treasurer Stephen Mullighan handed down his first budget on June 2, 2022.
Key highlights in the budget for community groups and economy recovery include:
- $1.3 million in expanded funding over the next four years to support Aboriginal community organisations to undertake cultural burning
- $750,000 towards future rounds of the Premier’s Fund for Children and Young People
- $300,000 for a Food Relief Place-based Pilot Program to support emergency food relief
- $440,000 for the extension of Volunteering Tasmania’s Safeguarding Volunteering Project
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 the first to know where the money is flowing, and to search for and manage your grant applications using the dashboard tool.
