The $280 million Black Summer Bushfire Recovery (BSBR) grants program will support community recovery from the 2019-20 bushfires, and are an opportunity for communities who still require assistance to access support for their recovery journey.

Grants can range from $20,000 to $10 million.

A broad range of recovery and resilience projects can be supported through the grants – from social and community wellbeing projects right through to projects that support the recovery of local economies and built environments.

The criteria we’re using is broad, so as many groups can access support as possible. Please look at the guidelines and encourage others too, as organisations might be eligible even if they can’t see themselves in the list above.

Applications open on 22 July and will close on 2 September 2021.

Support will be available for people who would like help with the grant application process, including workshops (in person and online). For more information visit Please note dates may change due to COVID-19 restrictions, so register early so you can receive the latest information.
