Building Resilient Regional Leaders Initiative

ClosedGrant Closed: 5th of November 2021 - 5:00 pm Value: $250,000 to $5 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://business.gov.au/grants-and-programs/building-resilient-regional-leaders-initiative

The purpose of the program is to support current and emerging regional leaders to further develop their leadership and resilience skills, enabling them to become strong local voices who can help sustain regional Australia’s recovery from COVID-19, bushfires and other crises, and contribute to their region’s long-term resilience. Local leaders have a significant role to play in boosting the resilience and vibrancy of their communities. The program is place-based and intended to meet local needs. 

The objectives of the program are to:

  • deliver place-based leadership training to support current and emerging regional leaders to develop leadership and resilience skills
  • facilitate the development of networks between current and emerging regional leaders, mentors and other experts where appropriate to help maximise the impacts of the training over the long-term
  • provide participants with opportunities and techniques to develop deeper connections within their regions.

The intended outcomes of the program for participants and communities are:

  • improved capacity and capability among participants to support their regions’ economic and social wellbeing, especially through future challenges
  • enhanced community and business engagement, particularly with issues of resilience
  • increased resilience and adaptability of communities.
