Reducing the threshold for charities affected by the Coronavirus will support a sector which is expected to have a significant increase in demand for its services. @ZedSeselja @salvos @ACOSS @CSS_Aus

The JobKeeper legislation we are introducing into Parl on Wed will see charities registered with the ACNC eligible for JobKeeper Payment if they have a turnover decline of 15% or more. This will apply to all registered charities, including those with a turnover of more than $1b.

Thank you to our charities for doing what you do as our nation faces the challenges of #COVID19. I know a lot of charities, and your staff, are doing it tough right now as you continue to give a helping hand to those who need it most.
