Show close time for other time zones
The Strong and Resilient Communities Activity (SARC) is an element of the Families and Communities Program. SARC aims to build strong, resilient, cohesive and harmonious communities to ensure that individuals, families and communities have the opportunity to thrive, be free from intolerance and discrimination, and have the capacity to respond to emerging needs and challenges. The Australian Government has allocated around $12.3 million a year for SARC. This funding will be allocated flexibly among the following three grant programs: Community Resilience, Inclusive Communities and National Research. National Research grants will help to build the Government’s understanding of existing and emerging issues and increase the evidence base to inform Commonwealth Government policies and programs. Funding will be available for one-off time-limited research and advice projects that impact on community resilience and social cohesion in Australia and reflect current Government priorities, address emerging issues and/or providing innovative solutions to issues of national significance. The objective of the National Research grants is for Government to receive up to date advice and information to respond to emerging needs and challenges about issues relating to social cohesion and individual and community wellbeing. For National Research grants, funding of a minimum of $20,000 up to a maximum of $150,000 a year will be available depending on the scope of the research project and its complexity. The funding will be available from 1 April 2018 to 30 June 2021. Research projects funded under National Research grants will be for a minimum of one year and a maximum of three and a quarter years. A research project may commence at any point within this timeframe but must cease on or before 30 June 2021.
