Update on funding for Victorian community services providers

16 June 2020
The Premier has recently announced that the 2020-21 Victorian budget will be deferred until later this year due to the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Despite this, it is critical that we keep delivering services to reach those most in need.

To make certain essential services continue to be delivered, the Victorian Government is extending funding for the below listed initiatives until the end of September 2020.

  • Further advice on the continuation of these programs will be provided before 30 September 2020.
  • Other initiatives not listed below will receive communications before the end of June.

Any questions relating to funding should be addressed to your Department of Health and Human Services (the department) contact. Funded agencies are encouraged to view the updated COVID-19 Plan for the Victorian Community Services Sector for further information.

Guidance for coronavirus (COVID-19) planning in the community services sector which supplements the above-listed plan, is also now available on the coronavirus website.
