New round of Community Support Levy grants opens

Roger Jaensch,Minister for Human Services and Community Development

The 2019-2020 round of Community Support Levy grants to support charitable organisations opened this week.

The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is a strong supporter of charitable organisations and the vital role they play in supporting vulnerable Tasmanians and building stronger communities.

There are two categories of grants – Small Equipment Grants of up to $5000 to purchase equipment and Community Projects Grants of up to $18,000. Organisations cannot apply for both grants.

Some examples of previously successful grants includes the purchase of stackable chairs for the Rosebery Community House, lightweight hiking tents for the Devonport branch of the Scouts Associations of Australia and developing a Community Sports Living Program for Special Olympics Tasmania.

I would encourage all charitable organisations to seek more information about these grants and to apply if they believe they qualify or have a suitable project in mind.
