The formerly known ‘SES Non-Recurrent Subsidy Program’ has
been re-branded as the ‘SES Support Grant’ and includes a momentous boost
to the grants available AND an increase in grant funding amounts!
The aim of the SES Support Grant is to assist local
governments in providing high quality emergency and disaster management
services by supporting the activities of the SES. Grants up to
$75,000 for accommodation and $30,000 for motor vehicles are available.
Local governments contribute significantly to the
ongoing viability of the SES and your support remains an integral facet in the
Organisations’ effectiveness, especially when challenged during emergencies and
disasters. This continued support enables the thousands of SES volunteers
to continue to selflessly devote their time to assist local communities, and ensures
that they are adequately resourced and equipped to do so.
The 2019-20 Round is NOW OPEN and closes Friday 30 November 2018.
I encourage all local governments supporting the
activities of the SES to apply.
