Rotary will be distributing funds from May 1st 2019, however because funds are capped, you are encouraged to submit your application as soon as possible.
While you may apply to more than one provider for a $3000 benefit, benefits are limited to one per household. If you receive a benefit via one charity, you should contact other charities you have applied to and cancel the additional applications. If you fail to do so it is likely you will be contacted by the Commonwealth and asked to pay back additional benefits received.
