In an immediate support response to COVID-19 in April 2020, we launched Barossa Cares, to connect to vulnerable community members with the support and services most needed.
COVID-19 Recovery Plan
In May 2020 we released a COVID-19 Recovery Plan to support the community more broadly through the ongoing effects and in the recovery of the pandemic, including extended rate relief options.
In March 2021 we released COVID-19 Recovery Plan and Response to Tariff Impacts outlining a $470,000 up-front investment to support regional economic and community rebuilding.
The plan included a wide range of economic, social, and wellbeing measures to stimulate local activity including:
- a $50,000 community and club restart grant program
- tourism and marketing campaigns
- small business support from a $100,000 grant program
- event activation
- volunteer re-engagement
- a dedicated resource to deliver community, recreation, and sport development programs and support clubs and groups to restart.
