If you’re interested in developing a regional leadership program, the Building Resilient Regional Leaders Initiative (Pilot) may be the perfect grant to get your project off the ground. With $5 million in support up for grabs, the program aims to support current and emerging regional leaders to enable them to become strong local voices who can help sustain regional Australia’s recovery from COVID-19, bushfires and other crises, and contribute to their region’s long-term resilience.
The program will:
- deliver place based leadership training to support current and emerging regional leaders to develop leadership and resilience skills
- facilitate the development of networks between current and emerging regional leaders, mentors and other experts where appropriate to help maximise the impacts of the training over the long-term
- provide participants with opportunities and techniques to develop deeper connections within their regions.
Grants will be from $250,000 to $5 million. The grant amount will be up to 100% of eligible project costs.
Applications open September 24 and will close November 5, 2021.
