Grants for Resilience & Wellness (GR&W)
Proudly supported by
Previous funding rounds
The Grants for Resilience & Wellness (GR&W) program has a specific focus on providing assistance towards community-strengthening and resilience-building projects for communities affected by the 2009 Victorian bushfires.
It recognises that while the fires were in 2009, recovery takes time and 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.
If your community organisation is seeking funding to support commemorative activities for the 10-year Anniversary of Black Saturday, please apply through this grant round.
Organisations seeking more information about commemorative activities can also contact local Community Foundations established through the Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fund:
