Show close time for other time zones
Community Resilience grants aim to build strong, resilient and cohesive communities to help make Australia more secure and harmonious as a whole. This will be done through providing grants for projects that address whole-of-community issues in high need communities. For the purposes of Community Resilience grants, high need communities are defined as those that are experiencing, show potential for, or early signs of, low social cohesion, and/or pockets of racial, religious or cultural intolerance. Grants will be available to eligible community organisations to build and sustain social cohesion and community resilience, whether through employment, education or broader community life. Community Resilience projects may include a multicultural arts or festival event. All Community Resilience projects must include a Harmony Day event.
