The grant program helps communities access the resources they need to support one another through the ongoing effects of the drought.
Grants are available for a broad range of grassroots, community-led initiatives that directly and clearly benefit local communities.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and assessed quarterly. Projects must demonstrate a focus on one of seven activity areas, from building community resilience to improving community health and social wellbeing.
Projects can apply for funding between $20,000 and $150,000.
