Vinnies Victoria's Bushfire Community Grants are available to fund local projects in bushfire-affected areas, helping multiple people to recover. The Black Summer bushfires affected each community differently and we know each community’s recovery needs are different.
Grant-funded projects will take many forms, and we are open to innovative ideas. Your community group or organisation could apply for repairs to shared facilities such as a community hall; local assistance programs for bushfire-impacted families; funding to get an impacted community services back on its feet; recreational activities to bring the community together and promote healing; or counselling and educational programs linked to the experience of the fires. These are just a few examples.
