The objective of this grant opportunity is to support the recovery efforts of communities in eligible Local Government Areas (LGAs) affected by the 2019-20 bushfires and enables them to apply for projects that address community recovery needs within their own timeframes.

The Australian Government will directly fund successful applicants to conduct a range of projects designed to support the social and economic recovery, and restoration of the built environment in those communities.

The grant amount will be up to 100 per cent of eligible project expenditure and you must complete your project by 31 March 2024.

The objectives of the grant opportunity are to:

  • support recovery and resilience of communities impacted by the 2019-20 bushfires, and
  • build stronger communities by supporting social, economic and built environment recovery.

Activities must be undertaken in an eligible the Local Government Area, and while many have also been impacted by other disasters, this program is intended to addresss community bushfire recovery priorities.

A funding envelope has been allocated to each eligible LGA to ensure all LGAs have the opportunity to receive funding. Eligbible LGAs have been grouped into two categories, based on the impact of the bushfires on the LGA. If the project is located in multiple LGAs the amount of funding assigned to the LGA would be commensurate with the cost of activities being undertaken within the LGA.
