The intention of the Repair-Restore-Renew (RRR) Program is to help communities recover by addressing needs that emerge in the twelve months after the disaster event.

Funds are raised from the time of the event, however in keeping with FRRR’s Natural Disaster Framework, funds are not dispersed until 12 months after natural disaster has been declared.

This ensures support is available for the medium to long term recovery process.

Grants for community recovery projects and activities that offer clear public benefit are available for communities living in areas severely affected by a declared Natural Disaster. 

“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.”
