Community Wellbeing & Resilience Grants


The Community Wellbeing & Resilience Grants provide funding for community-based projects that contribute to positive wellbeing and resilience outcomes to address the impacts of COVID-19 on groups of people within the South Australian community.

Applications for the grants are now open and close on Friday 17 July 2020.

Funding of between $10,000 and $100,000 is available for projects which will support wellbeing and resilience with an emphasis on mental, physical (activity and nutrition) and/or social wellbeing. Funding is available for the 2020-21 financial year only with all grant funds to be expended by 30 June 2021.

Project proposals should be consistent with the principles of the Statewide Wellbeing Strategy and demonstrate a clear focus on a group or groups who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, including those outlined in the Open Your World - Statewide Wellbeing Strategy.

The Grants, administered by Wellbeing SA are not designed to support existing programs or services, or for service delivery to individuals, but are to support new initiatives that contribute to community wellbeing and resilience in response to COVID-19.
