Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Community Grants Program is suspended effective 15 June 2020 to support the measures established by the City of Salisbury to promote safety and reduce the potential for the spread of COVID-19.   The Community Grants Program will re-open to accept applications from 1 July 2020.

The City of Salisbury has established a Sports and Community Clubs COVID-19 Recovery Support Package and details can be found here.
