Council Announces Community Grants for Recovery and Resilience
Applicants must be a local group or organisation with local presence OR auspiced by a local organisation. Project outcomes could include:
- Initiatives that support social, economic, and environmental recovery.
- Build emergency preparedness and improved community disaster resilience, in particular for members of the community at greater risk.
- Improve social connection and support health and wellbeing.
Blue Mountains Mayor Mark Greenhill said: “It’s been more than 12 months since the devastating 2019/202 bush fires, and with everything else we’ve seen and faced in that time, you could be forgiven for thinking that the recovery work is done and dusted.
“But the truth is, that work is still going on and our communities are still trying to recover from those events. Council has made it a priority from the beginning to support those directly and indirectly affected by the 2019/2020 bushfires, and that is still the case now.
“The Community Recovery Grants is one avenue Council is using to continue that support. These grants are a wonderful opportunity that can enable local community groups to do work they may not otherwise have been resourced to do.”
The grants are open until the 15 May and successful applicants will be announced by the 30 May.
For project development support or enquiries, please contact Council’s Community Recovery Officer Rebecca Evers on 0439 620 163 or.
This funding has been make available through the State Government Bushfire Recovery and Resilience fund.
