Grants for Resilience & Wellness (GR&W) Kinglake Ranges

Butchers paper with notes on it

The GR&W Kinglake Ranges program has a specific focus on providing assistance towards community-strengthening and resilience-building projects for communities in the Kinglake Ranges that were affected by the 2009 Victorian bushfires.

It recognises that while the fires were in 2009, recovery takes time and an important part of community recovery is having opportunities to connect, share experiences, enhance individual and community wellbeing and resilience, and to build strength and capacity for the future. The funds are a result of the 2016 decision by the VBAF Panel to withdraw funding allocated to the Kinglake Multipurpose Facility project. Initial rounds of the GR&W Kinglake program prioritised organisations and project ideas raised through a community consultation process conducted in 2017. Round 4 of GR&W Kinglake is open to all community groups and not-for-profit organisations in the Kinglake Ranges.
