RELEASEParliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Health, Housing and Community Services GJ24/92 17 December 1992


Grants to assist needy people in the community to deal with crisis situations have been made by the Federal Government.

The Federal Government will provide $1,611 million in grants under the Emergency Relief Program in 1992-93 to 74 local community welfare agencies. This is an increase of about $100,000 over the previous year.

Funding is provided to community agencies who normally distribute emergency assistance as one of a range of activities they undertake in assisting needy clients, including low income families and single parents.

They can provide immediate assistance on a discretionary basis for expenses such as food, clothing or other essentials, or for payment of electricity, gas or rental

These grants are part of a total Emergency Relief funding allocation of $18,352 million being provided throughout Australia in 1992-93.

This represents an increase of some $2.01 million or 12.3% over the funding provided in 1991-92.

The grants being made at this time represent the second allocation of funds to Emergency Relief agencies this financial year. An initial payment was made in July.

A list of South Australian agencies receiving Emergency Relief grants in 1992-93, and their allocations, is attached.
