Community Recovery grants

The Community Recovery Grants Program 2021 provides support to community organisations for initiatives to support and directly benefit the Glen Eira community as it recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. Projects may include those that re-engage communities, bring people together in new ways or reach out to vulnerable people. 

This program is currently closed.

The focus of this Program was to regenerate the Glen Eira community by supporting projects that focus on the immediate needs of vulnerable populations and those disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
