Community Recovery and Resilience Small Grants Program
Applications are now open for small scale community grants. These grants are open to local community organisations to assist with the ongoing recovery needs from the 2019-2020 bushfires and to prepare for future disasters.
The aim of this funding is to increase community capacity and capability to prepare for and recover from disasters. Grants of $2,500 to $5,000 to deliver flexible locally led community recovery activities and will be awarded to eligible community organisations that can:
- Engage with the community to educate and raise awareness about hazards, with a focus on creating better prepared and resilient communities
- Raise awareness that planning for disasters is a shared responsibility and educate groups to reduce risk, prepare for and respond to a disaster and encourage recovery arrangements.
Applications are open until 30 July 2021. Apply online here or contact the Community Recovery team on 6648 4840. We are happy to help write the application!
