The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) has developed a collaborative grant program supporting flood affected communities in Victoria called The Repair Restore Renew (RRR) Grant Program.
Grants from $100 to $20,000 will be provided to not-for-profit organisations that can clearly demonstrate the following:
Projects must directly relate to communities in Victoria affected by, or impacted by, riverine and/or flash flooding during summer 2010-2011.
Projects must be for a charitable purpose (benefit the wider community). All applications for projects with a charitable purpose will be received and considered.
Projects which contribute to community renewal and/or rebuilding in the areas of social and community wellbeing, economic, environmental, health, education and cultural areas will be considered.
Projects that demonstrate a benefit to the community in the medium to long term recovery process (12 to 36 months).
Applicant organisations must have an ABN or Incorporation Certificate.
The application closing date is 24 August 2012. Applications are available from www.frrr.org.au/cb_pages/repair_renew_restore.php. Contact Lisa Cook, Flood Recovery Officer, on 0417 237 587 for further information.
