“This funding will help our frontline organizations.

The funding will support nonprofit organizations that have seen their income decline and can be used to help brokerage services and customer support,” Singh said.

Grants support organizations that have escaped other safety nets provided by JobSaver or the nonprofit JobSaver and work in the sectors of child and family services, domestic violence, homelessness, animal health, disability and welfare.

Coffs area organizations sharing funding are Volunteering Coffs Harbor Incorporated ($150,000), Woolgoolga Neighborhood Center Inc ($40,000), Boambee East Community Center Inc ($20,000), UCA Lifeline North Coast ($200,000 ), Coffs Harbor Employment Support Services Ltd ($200,000), The Community Transport Company Limited ($200,000) and Coffs Harbor Home Modification & Maintenance Service Inc ($40,000).

Over 400 organizations across NSW receive funding through the Fund.

“These organizations provide essential frontline services and support to vulnerable people and this program will ease the financial pressure and help them recover after an incredibly difficult time,” Singh said.
