22 local community groups in Mallee will benefit from a share of $2.7 million from the Morrison Government to support the work of local volunteers.
The grants awarded are between $1,000 and $5,000, and will enable local organisations to better support their volunteers to purchase small equipment, pay fuel, transport and training costs.
Member for Mallee, Anne Webster, said volunteers are an integral part of our society, especially during difficult times.
“On December 5 we mark International Volunteer Day and celebrate the contribution of charity and community groups across Mallee as they continue to support the vulnerable and strengthen our community,” Dr Webster said.
“Victoria has been significantly impacted by bushfires and coronavirus this year and help is still needed by many.
“I welcome the Morrison McCormack Government’s grant funding for 22 organisations in Mallee as part of this supplementary grant round.”
“This additional funding will go a long way in helping even more local organisations and their volunteers to continue their important work, through what has been a very tough year,” Dr Webster said.
Volunteer peak bodies across all states and territories are distributing the funding based on the needs of the sector in each state or territory.
The 2020-21 Volunteer Grants round is expected to open mid-2021. Subscribe on the Community Grants Hub to be alerted to this and other grant listings.
