Through the Direct Grants Program, we help South Australian’s experiencing acute or chronic financial stress to stabilise their housing or financial situation by providing one-off small grants that pay for a specific item, service or bill at the time it is most needed, and complement the wrap around service and support provided by referring organisations.
From August 2023 access to the Direct Grants Program is changing to align the program more closely with our current strategy. New referrer registration will cease from 7th August 2023.
People interested in applying for a grant for themselves, family or a friend, can contact the National Debt Helpline 1800 007 007 or the Affordable SA website.
Bill Cossey AM Grant Program
From 1 July 2021 the Bill Cossey AM Grants Program will be administered by Wyatt on behalf of the Adelaide Benevolent Society.
A single application is used to assess Wyatt grants and Bill Cossey AM grants. If you are specifically applying for a Bill Cossey AM grant, please note this in your application, however please be aware that Wyatt will use discretion in determining whether to process the application as a Bill Cossey AM or Wyatt request in order to maximise the benefit to the applicant and the impact of both funds.
