Objectives of the Community Resilience Fund

·     Create and activate places within local communities that increase access to opportunities for physical activity and social connection

·   Community-led Response

·     Support local community-led initiatives

·     Recognise and utilise the resources, skills, knowledge and infrastructure of local communities

·     Build on existing community strengths and reflect the local context.

·   Capacity Building

·     Strengthen the capacity and capability of communities to identify and deliver effective services and activities that will increase community resilience and wellbeing

·     Identify and cultivate local leadership

5.3       The Council formally adopted the Objectives as the funding Criteria in October 2017.

·   Funding arrangement  can be flexible and innovative activities developed as funding is not restricted by an application or contract

5.5       The Council has allocated funding to 34 initiatives in 2017/18.   The total allocation is $2,224,680 Year 1 and $1,695,000 Year 2.
