Not for profit (NFP) early childhood education and care (ECEC) services in South Australia are reminded that grants of up to $100,000 are now available through the State Government Grants SA program.


Representing a total investment of $3 million by the State Government, South Australian Minister for Human Services, Michelle Lensink, encouraged eligible non-for-profit organisations to apply for a grant.


“I’m pleased to announce applications are now open for the first round of grants between $10,000 and $100,000.These grants will go a long way in helping our deserving community organisations right across South Australia, including our regions.” Ms Lensink said.


During this round of grant funding, applications for Grants that support the prevention of domestic, family and sexual violence, increase disability inclusion, address the cost of living or support innovation in South Australia will be prioritised. 


The Grant funding can be used: 


  • to purchase equipment, 


  • fund community activities, 


  • to deliver one-off programs or services, 


  • for upgrades to community facilities, 


  • to run activities to recruit or retain volunteers or provide learning and skill development opportunities for volunteers.


Major grants – that is, those applications requesting between $10,000 and $100,000 can be submitted online here, until 4 September 2019. 


Smaller grant applications – that is, those seeking amounts between $100 and $10,000 – will open 1 August 2019, with the submission window closing 30 September 2019.
