A second round of grants of up to $150,000 each is now available to help Central Queensland communities further recover from the 2018 Central Queensland Bushfires, thanks to a $4.9 million recovery package jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments.

Applications can be for either or both small grants (between $2,500 and $50,000) or large grants (between $50,001 and $150,000) to support events, activities and programs that drive community recovery activities, increase awareness and build local resilience.
