The NSW Government announced the $50 million SSTF in November 2020. The SSTF is an economic stimulus initiative aimed at supporting eligible small and medium-sized charities and not for profits operating in the health and social service sectors.

Interested organisations can access the application through links on the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) website.

To be eligible to apply, organisations must be appropriately registered with a total revenue of less than $5 million in the 2019/20 financial year.

The Open grants are available for three fixed amounts of: 

·         $20,000 for around 500 organisations

·         $50,000 for around 300 organisations, and

·         $200,000 for three organisations.

The SSTF open grants are a great opportunity to assist the sector. A factsheet on the Open grants is attached for distribution.
