Round 2 of the Rebuilding Futures program is now open for remote, rural and regional QLD and NSW communities impacted by extreme weather events commencing from 22 February 2022.

A funding pool of $500,000 will support grants of up to $25,000 for local not-for-profit community organisations to undertake community-identified and community-led recovery activities that can strengthen resilience and enable projects for building back better to reduce the impact of future disasters on community wellbeing and physical infrastructure.

What can be funded?

A broad range of charitable projects are considered under this program, including:

• Delivering, or providing activities, events, programs and services;
• Purchasing or hiring equipment and materials;
• Community infrastructure projects;
• Organisational capacity building;
• Sessions and programs to support strengthening community members’ mental health and wellbeing; and
• Community resource development including volunteer development and support and local information for recovery and resilience building.


To apply, you must meet the following criteria:

• Applicant organisations must be a not-for-profit organisation with either an Incorporation Certificate and/or an ABN. If you are unsure if your organisation is a registered not-for-profit (for example, if you are a Co-operative, Other Unincorporated Entity, Public Company or Trust), please contact FRRR.
• Project must be for charitable purposes and offer clear public benefit;
• Not-for-profit organisations with or without DGR-1 endorsement are eligible;
• Organisations can submit one application per grant round; and
