Grants up to $30,000 on offer to help restore bushfire-affected communities.
The St Vincent de Paul Society Canberra/Goulburn is offering Bushfire Community Grants of up to $30,000 and organisations in areas affected by the Black Summer bushfires are encouraged to apply.
"In many areas, particularly those hit hardest by the black summer bushfires, communities are still rebuilding," Raymond Akhurst, Bushfire Recovery Coordinator at the St Vincent de Paul Society Canberra/Goulburn said.
The St Vincent de Paul Society Canberra/Goulburn is now accepting applications for the third round of community grants.
Grassroots organisations are encouraged to apply for grants of up to $30,000 - with applications closing on July 9.
"The aim is to attract projects that help rebuild and create future resilience and those that contribute to positive, worthwhile community causes," Mr Akhurst said.
"This is part of the Society's plan to support people affected by natural disasters like the Black Summer bushfires for the long haul."
"In the immediate aftermath, our Members were on the ground providing emergency supplies like food and clothes as well as temporary accommodation. Since the immediate crisis passed, we have been working with communities to help them replace what was lost."
John Feint, president of the St Vincent de Paul Society Canberra/Goulburn said in the 140 years that Vinnies has been operating in Australia, it's become very clear that damage from natural disasters persists long after its cause has passed.
"If you have a project that needs funding that will help restore your community following the Black Summer bushfires, please, apply," he encouraged.
