Local groups and not-for-profit organisations that delivered food and care hampers to community members during the 2021 COVID lockdowns can now apply to have some of their distribution expenses reimbursed thanks to the Resilience NSW COVID Regional Community Support (CRCS) program.
Not-for-profits and groups can now apply to recoup up to $30,000 of costs incurred when distributing these vital supports during lockdown, including fuel, couriers and logistics expenses.
Speaking of these organisations, Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said “I want to extend my gratitude to everyone who contributed to these efforts and acknowledge the outstanding community spirit that has carried us through this challenging time.”
Minister for Emergency Services and Resilience Steph Cooke said the NSW Government was committed to supporting community groups and not-for-profits in their important work. “We know that many community groups had to dip into their own funds to distribute hampers and relief packs to people who needed extra support during last year’s lockdown,” Ms Cooke said.
Applications close on Tuesday, 1st March. Reimbursed funds will become available in late April. For more information and to apply, go to: https://frrr.org.au/ResNSW-Covid-Support.
