$5k COVID grants for local NFPs


Local not-for-profit community groups, organisations and businesses can apply for up to $5,000 under the City of Cockburn’s COVID-19 response grants program.

Applications for the one-off grants are open now until 8 June, with just over $150,000 available, following a Council decision at the City’s May meeting.

The grants will be available to Cockburn-based groups, organisations and businesses that serve local residents, have a high level of community support, are financially stable and can identify how they will use the grant to help meet community need amid the pandemic.

City of Cockburn Manager Community Development Karoline Jamieson said the grants were designed to help local groups, organisations and businesses support some of Cockburn’s most vulnerable people during COVID-19.

“Applicants need to be able to demonstrate that they are dealing with an increase in demand for their services during the pandemic, including services like charities providing crisis relief,” Ms Jamieson said.

“Other ways groups and businesses might be helping could be providing inclusive services to minority groups by using new ways to reduce barriers to people trying to access a service.

“Perhaps your group is providing new services to increase mental, physical or social wellbeing to reduce fear and stress at this time, or are delivering business and community recovery initiatives.”

Applicants will be notified of outcomes and funding will be delivered by the end of the 2019/20 financial year.
