Grants SA is Currently Open for Applications!

Grants SA offer four one-off grant programs – the Charitable and Social Welfare Fund (Community Benefit SA), Multicultural Grants, Volunteer Training Grants and the Volunteer Support Fund. These programs have been combined into a single application process. Community organisations can now apply once to be considered for funding across four streams, and will also benefit from less restrictive guidelines and simpler reporting requirements.

In 2016-17, Grants SA will provide $3 million in grants to improve community participation, wellbeing and quality of life for South Australian’s. Major grant rounds 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 will be open all year round and assessed at the end of each month.

Online application forms and guidelines are available at If you do require further queries you should contact the Grants Team on 1300 650 985.

I would be pleased to offer a letter of support to your group’s application should you wish to apply for any grant. Please contact my office on 8365 4224 if I may be able to assist in any way.
