6 April 2020
RACT Insurance has launched a $100,000 grants funding program to assist community groups affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
CEO Trent Sayers says the COVID-19 Community Response Fund will support projects in Tasmania which build resilience and the ability of groups to rebound after the outbreak, and will help with fixed costs that are ongoing although operations are restricted.
“Local community groups make a big difference to life in Tasmania and will play an important role in rebuilding and bringing our communities back together once the threat of COVID-19 is over,” he said.
“As Tasmanians we are all in this together and we take our role of supporting our community through this difficult time seriously.”
RACT Insurance also says there are a number of options it can offer customers facing hardship, including payment flexibility and waiving of obligations for short periods of time.
It has also committed to immediate payment of invoices for its preferred repairers and suppliers and is maintaining continuity of access to available work.
