Community Benefits SA

Now Open The Department for Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI) has simplified access to four of its grant programs; The Charitable and Social Welfare Fund, Multicultural Celebrating Diversity one-off grants, Volunteer Training grants and Volunteer Support Fund. Grants SA will provide $3 million of one-off funding to community organisations in 2017-18 to support local projects that strengthen communities across South Australia.

Community organisations can apply for grant funding with one application form, one set of guidelines and simpler reporting requirements.

Funds will be distributed through major, medium and minor funding rounds. Major grants of $20,001 to $50,000 will be open twice a year, medium grants of $5,001 to $20,000 will be open four times a year and minor grants of up to $5,000 are open all year round and applications close on the last day of every month.
