The Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund (BCRRF) grants are provided to not-for-profit organisations or individual applicants to support sustained economic recovery and community resilience following the 2019-2020 bushfire season. The BCRRF Phase Two is designed to support community recovery by funding projects and initiatives that will promote community well-being, social and broader recovery and future disaster resilience following the bushfires.

Community projects need to meet one or more of the following objectives:

  • Improve community capacity, capability and resilience
  • Improve community connectedness, identity of place and cultural heritage 
  • Improve and build regional and community knowledge
  • Assist in local preparedness to future disasters and hazards
  • Promote future disaster resilience following the bushfires
  • Promote community well-being
  • Support social and broader community recovery
  • Support commemoration

Council will prioritise claims based on need and program benefit.

Project Cap: Total funding is capped at $62,500. This funding has been provided through the joint Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangement under the Bushfire Community Resilience and Recovery Fund. Apply via Council's Community Grants Application.
