Families and Communities Program: Strong and Resilient Communities Activity



The Strong and Resilient Communities Activity (SARC) is an element of the Families and Communities Program. SARC aims to build strong, resilient, cohesive and harmonious communities to ensure that individuals, families and communities have the opportunity to thrive, be free from intolerance and discrimination, and have the capacity to respond to emerging needs and challenges.

Funding will be available for one-off, time-limited research and advice projects that impact on community resilience and social cohesion in Australia and reflect current government priorities, address emerging issues and/or providing innovative solutions to issues of national significance.

The objective of the National Research Grants is for government to receive up to date advice and information to respond to emerging needs and challenges about issues relating to social cohesion and individual and community wellbeing.

The selection process is restricted to a specific audience.

The funding is not Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander specific. Applications close at 2.00pm AEDT 26 October 2017
