Grants of up to $20,000 now available for eligible community-managed mental health and alcohol and other drug organisations

Posted on April 15, 2020

Community-managed mental health and alcohol and other drug organisations have a week to apply for grant funding drawn from $450,000 pledged by the Tasmanian Government to support the sectors during the coronavirus emergency response.

The Community Managed Mental Health and Alcohol and Other Drug Sector COVID-19 Technology Fund will support organisations within these sectors to purchase technology required to adapt to new delivery methods to ensure service continuity.

Applications are now open, and will close at 9:00am on Wednesday 22 April.

Organisations can apply for a maximum of $20,000, and those who have already purchased technology after 10 March 2020 in response to COVID-19 will be eligible to apply for funds retrospectively (providing proof of purchase).

Funding for organisations will be allocated through a grant program coordinated by the Mental Health Council of Tasmania.
