Kinglake Ranges Community Planning Fund (KRCPF)

The Kinglake Ranges Community Planning Fund Program is available to community based organisations that participated in the Kinglake Ranges Community Planning Project (the Project) in 2017. The Project was developed by Regional Development Victoria (RDV) in consultation with the Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fund (VBAF) Panel, Murrindindi Shire Council and community representatives.

The Project followed the 2016 decision by the VBAF Panel to withdraw funding allocated to the Kinglake Multipurpose Facility project and engaged with the communities of the Kinglake Ranges, specifically Kinglake, Kinglake Central, Kinglake West, Pheasant Creek, Toolangi and Flowerdale.

This process identified a suite of 27 priority projects and initiatives that the community would like to pursue. Many of the initiatives defined were in the early stages of development and will require additional work to refine objectives, test feasibility and understand resourcing requirements. FRRR aims to offer support to community based organisations involved in the above consultation process to develop and progress identified projects to delivery stage.


Eligible organisations will be invited to apply to the Kinglake Ranges Community Planning Fund program, which is based on FRRR’s Grants for Resilience & Wellness (GR&W) disaster recovery grant program.


Links to the Program Guidelines and online application form will be provided when the program opens (to be determined), and after discussion with FRRR Disaster Recovery and Resilience team members.

Before applying, please read the Guidelines carefully (which you will find here when the program opens) and speak to FRRR Disaster Recovery and Resilience team members. Please note, no specific tax status is required.

FRRR uses an online grants administration system. All applications for the Kinglake Ranges Community Planning Fund (KRCPF) program will be submitted via FRRR's Grants Gateway online portal.
Please download and save the How-To Guide and the Grants Gateway FAQs to your desktop, and read through them thoroughly to help get you started. You may need to refer to them during the application process. We also encourage you to watch this introductory clip about the Activity Tree, which you'll need to understand to apply.
