Applications have now closed for the Council supported Regional Community Recovery Committees (RCRC), set up to support communities to recover from COVID 19 and the recent storm event.

Council has committed $800,000 for RCRCs, to gather information and identify the recovery priorities of their community to create a Community Led Recover Plan and recommend grant funding for community-led recovery projects.

Oversight and support for the funding processes will be managed by a partnership between Council, Local Bendigo Community Banks of the Yarra Ranges and the Community Enterprise Foundation™(CEF).
