COVIDSafe Community Grants
13 September 2021
COVIDSafe Community Grants are available to fund community initiatives that will help rebuild community connections that have been impacted by COVID-19.
The grants are coordinated by healthAbility and Access Health and Community (AccessHC).
COVIDSafe Community Grants will help not-for-profit community groups and organisations to implement community-based initiatives that build and foster:

They will do so while providing promotional and educational opportunities for COVID-19 community safety and vaccination.
