The Tathra and District Recovery and Resilience Grants Program is now open.
The grants program will add to the work already undertaken by community members and volunteers across the Shire.
The Tathra and District Recovery and Resilience Activities Program has been developed in response to the March 2018 bushfires.
The program will facilitate social engagement activities to assist members of the Tathra and District communities to link back into their support networks, tell their experiences, address issues arising from the disaster and build a greater sense of future safety.
Individuals and groups are encouraged to consider activities and events that will foster social cohesion, resilience and wellbeing in residents and home owners and apply for support through the grants program.
Activities must be driven by local people and groups with the purpose of assisting affected communities to heal and grow stronger into the future.
There will be two rounds for grant distribution, with $25,000 available in each. Non-incorporated groups may apply for up to $1,000 and incorporated groups may apply for up to $5,000.
Round 1 applications will now close on 9 September 2018 (note: the closing date has been extended)
The details for Round 2 will be advertised soon.
