The Community Wellbeing Grants are funded by Wentworth Healthcare, provider of the Nepean Blue Mountains Primary Health Network, as part of the Australian Government's response to the 2019/20 bushfires. Grants of up to $10,000 are now available for organisations or community groups based within bushfire affected communities in the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury and Lithgow areas. These grants can be used to deliver projects that foster connection, friendships and relationships, build community capacity, skills or knowledge, and which promote and/or refer to support services.
Applications close: 14 May 2021.
The grants follow on from the 'micro-grants' of up to $1,000 released last year for individuals to conduct grass roots community connection activities such as picnics, high teas, dance lessons and relaxation workshops. The 'micro-grants' are still available and applications will be accepted until funds are exhausted.
