Media Release: Adelaide community projects get $3 million

Community projects in the Federal electorate of Adelaide, including initiatives for local job creation and supporting childhood learning, will receive more than $3 million in support from the Australian Government.

Senator for South Australia Anne Ruston said six recipients in Adelaide would receive funding from the Strong and Resilient Communities grants program.

“Developing employment pathways, supporting mothers to kick-start childhood learning and fostering intercultural connectedness are just some of the objectives from the programs,” Senator Ruston said.

“It’s wonderful these recipients have embraced the concept that local ownership drives great outcomes for the local community.”

Senator Ruston said 83 organisations across Australia had received a total of $36.6 million in funding under the program.

“This complements the Turnbull Government’s national priorities of creating a safer Australia and helping people get into employment,” she said.

More information on Strong and Resilient Communities grants is available on the DSS website.

  • Anglicare SA Ltd
  • Mental Illness Fellowship of South Australia Incorporated
  • Baptist Care (SA) Incorporated
