The Northern Rivers Community Foundation is this year giving out $50,000 of grants, the largest in its history.

The Community Grants Round will help meet the magnitude of support community organisations on the ground across the Northern Rivers need.

The grants range from $10,000 up to $50,000, with applications open from today, August 1 and closing on August 31

NRCF acting chief executive Allison Henry said the increased value of grants was in response to critical issues impacting the region with a focus on long-term rebuilding and resilience.

“Immediately after the flooding events of February and March, the Foundation conducted research with more than 300 community organisations on the ground across the seven local government areas of the Northern Rivers,” Ms Henry said.

This year’s Community Grants Program will offer the following streams of funding:

1. Small Grants of up to $10,000 funding four priority areas of Recovery & Resilience, Disadvantage, Environment and Housing & Homelessness.

2. Recovery and Resilience Capacity Building Grants of up to $25,000 to support disaster recovery initiatives, resilience and disaster mitigation projects.

3. Flood Relief Fund Capacity Building Grants of up to $50,000 to support flood recovery initiatives, resilience and disaster mitigation projects.
