Resilience NSW COVID Regional Community Support Program

Many regional community groups, not-for-profit organisations and other locally-based community health groups in regional NSW played a critical role in supporting their communities to navigate the impacts of COVID by delivering food and personal care hampers. In some cases, these groups are out of pocket from delivering those hampers.

Recognising this, the NSW Government has partnered with FRRR to create the Resilience NSW COVID Regional Community Support (CRCS) program. It is designed to support eligible not-for-profit organisations, community groups and associated volunteer-based organisations based in NSW, but outside the Sydney metropolitan area, that incurred expenses in delivering food and personal care items to individuals and families affected by COVID lockdowns.

The program will offer a contribution towards reimbursing expenses for eligible organisations, while a second stream (opening in March) will help build resilience within their communities to mitigate future pandemic events.

Applications for reimbursement open 31 January, and close 1 March.

Funds will be dispersed by the end of April.

Find out more about whether your group could be eligible. Applications close 1 March, 2022.


Any questions should be directed to FRRR on 1800 170 020 or email
