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.
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:
