Strong and Resilient Communities Program – Upcoming Grant Opportunity

The Strong and Resilient Communities: Inclusive Communities Program aims to support the social and economic participation of vulnerable and disadvantaged people by enabling the development of community driven/led solutions designed to meet identified strong needs that place people on long term pathways towards self-reliance.

Time limited projects will be funded to focus on supporting community connection and inclusion through creating pathways to social and economic participation. The key cohorts that will be targeted are:

  • children and youth under 18 years
  • unemployed people
  • vulnerable and disadvantaged women
  • people with disability or mental health issues.

Projects delivering online supports to improve the social and economic participation of people within their communities will also be sought.

Prospective applicants are invited to register their interest in attending virtual information sessions to learn more about the development of strong Program Logics with well-articulated expected outcomes and data collection strategies. There will be 4 sessions in July 2021, each taking a focus on one of the 4 key cohorts above. Spaces at the sessions are limited, so to register your interest, please email SARC@DSS.gov.au indicating which cohort or cohorts are of interest to you. Resources used at the sessions will also be made available on GrantConnect.
