Community Response and Recovery Funding

Hand holding community sign

The City is committed to building healthy, safe and connected communities, and ensuring our residents can access support in accordance to our Community Funding Program.

In light of recent events, the City has created a Community Response and Recovery Fund in order to provide both short term, immediate relief packages and longer term support options to its residents, community groups and organisations.

This Fund will enable the continuation or expansion of essential services which support vulnerable residents, increase the resilience and sustainability of local community groups and sporting clubs and enable innovative approaches to community reconnection.

Community Funding

In order to meet the overall goals and outcomes of the Response and Recovery Fund, the City has developed four categories of support which will be available for application at different stages throughout 2020/21:

  • Category A – Supporting Essential Service Demands  
  • Category B – Sustainable Community Groups and Clubs
  • Category C – Connected Communities
  • Category D – City Facility Hire Support

Supporting the Most Vulnerable

Category A - Supporting Essential Service Demands (Open)
Funding of up to $5,000 will be available to enable the continuation or expansion of essential programs or initiatives that service vulnerable community members who have been impacted by COVID-19. Funding will be allocated based on identified service gaps and demands to support towards local programs and activites that are not funded by the Commonwealth or State Government.
