Funding available for COVID Community Resilience Building
The NSW Government has partnered with FRRR to create the Resilience NSW COVID Regional Community Support (CRCS) program.
It is specifically designed to support eligible not-for-profit organisations, community groups, and associated volunteer-based organisations that responded to the impacts of COVID, including supporting community members affected by COVID isolation health orders with food and personal care delivery efforts. Groups must be based within NSW but outside the Sydney metropolitan area.
The aim of the program is to build resilience within communities to boost their preparedness for future impacts of COVID and other disasters. The Capacity Building Grants can support community projects that increase the capacity of community groups that are likely to:
- Provide ongoing services to affected members of the community;
- Build resilience within these communities; and/or
- Build capacity for your community group or organisation to deliver services in communities to mitigate and respond to the pandemic and future disasters.
Applications for these Capacity Building grants are now being accepted and close 29 April 2022. Recipients will be announced in July 2022. There is more information about the program on FRRR’s website, including details about eligibility and what can be funded.
If your group isn’t eligible, but you know a group that might be, please feel free to pass on this email. Of course, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact FRRR on 1800 324 85 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
