Recover and Strengthen
From our experience, we know that it takes time for communities to Recover and Strengthen - for this reason, our natural disaster recovery programs typically begin 12-18 months after an initial disaster and, depending on available funding, last for several years afterwards.
We also understand that community needs differ depending on the type of natural disaster and the stage of recovery that they are in; therefore FRRR offers a suite of programs tailored to each natural disaster event.
Our 2013/14 Recover and Strengthen programs included:
- Grants for Resilience & Wellness (GR&W) - supporting mental health, wellbeing and community connectedness;
- Skills, Training, Engagement and Practical Support (STEPS) - supporting skills, training, engagement and practical support programs;
- Repair-Restore-Renew (RRR) - focused on infrastructure and medium to long-term community needs; and
- Tackling Tough Times Together (TTTT) - helping drought affected communities in Qld and NSW.
