To help bridge the gap for our members who are waiting on government support to be made available to them, we have launched the ACA Emergency Assistance Fund.
Kelly Applebee, the ACA’s General Manager Member Programs and Relations said that the $250,000 fund would provide interim relief to those members experiencing job loss, increased anxiety, stress and general uncertainty.
“Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve spoken to several members who are doing it tough, and we’ve been trying to help where we can,” she said.
“We’ve worked hard over that time to bring together a framework around the support we can provide, as well as some significant resources, and we encourage those members who have felt the impact of the coronavirus and who are still waiting on government support, to get in touch with us as we may be able to help.”
Communication has been sent to past players and female domestic cricketers who are eligible to apply. For those who meet the criteria, the fund offers through tiered loans and grants to assist with short-term financial implications.
