Grants for Resilience & Wellness (GR&W)

The Grants for Resilience & Wellness (GR&W) program helps communities affected by the 2009 Victorian bushfires to undertake community strengthening and resilience-building projects. 

This program will run until funds are expended, recognising that it takes time for communities to recover from such natural events and that individuals and communities recover in different ways. It also acknowledges that an important part of community recovery is having opportunities to connect, share experiences, enhance individual and community wellbeing and resilience, and to build strength and capacity for the future.


Round 11 is now closed.

We welcome applications from communities for projects that will support their recovery. Please carefully read the guidelines and speak to our Program Manager before applying. Outcomes will be provided to applicant organisations in writing within 6-8 weeks of the closing date. Please read the guidelines carefully before applying. Please note, no specific tax status is required.
