ClosedGrant Closed: 6th of January 2022 - 5:00 pm Value: $20,000 to $10 Million Run By: National Recovery and Resilience Agency Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=da2975d6-08a1-4219-b026-e1d1677273c1

The program is one component of the Preparing Australia Program targeting support to locally identified and locally led projects that will improve the resilience of communities against natural hazards. Round 1 will focus on projects that will improve the resilience of communities against bushfires, flood and tropical cyclones.

The program is open to applications for projects all around Australia. The program will prioritise selected Local Government Areas (LGAs) based on their level of comparative hazard risk, informed by the Australian Climate Service and state and territory governments. Applications with project activities addressing the hazard risks in the selected Local Government Areas (LGAs) will receive an additional 20 points. No LGAs in the Northern Inland are in the list of selected priotiry LGAs.

The intended outcome of the grant opportunity is to support communities to undertake disaster risk reduction and resilience initiatives that provide public benefit through reducing:

  • the impact of future natural hazards on Australian communities
  • the burden (cost and time) of recovery in communities following future disasters.
