Repair-Restore-Renew (RRR) 2013
Proudly supported by
|Previous funding rounds|
FRRR's Repair-Restore-Renew (RRR) Program helps communities recover from natural disaters, by providing grants that help to address community needs that begin to emerge 12-18 months after the disaster event. FRRR's experience shows that this is the time when the focus often moves to community recovery, as individual needs have often been met. It is also the time when the rest of the world has often turned its attention to subsequent natural disasters.
The RRR 2013 program provided grants to support the medium-to-long term recovery of communities impacted by the bushfires, cyclones and floods in Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland in 2013.
Thanks to the collaboration of several donors, 5 grant rounds were conducted across the 2013 disaster-affected regions, with nearly $530,000 distributed in funding to 48 community groups.
Grants ranging from $100 to $15,000 were provided to non-profit and community organisations based in, or working in these disaster affected communities. A variety of projects were supported, including mental health and community wellbeing, volunteer support and training, community preparedness and resilience strategies, environmental recovery, local economic recovery, and community infrastructure restoration and renewal.
“Without organisations like FRRR and their donors we would not have had our Museum restored. Cardwell’s history would have been lost forever. Cardwell might be a small town but we all help to contribute to Australia’s rich history. It would have been such a travesty to have lost that.”
Murray Massey, Cardwell Historical Society
