Community Capability and Resilience Fund
18 September 2020
The Community Capability and Resilience Fund (CCRF) is a fund available to community groups for initiatives that support the rebuild and recovery from Covid-19. The $36 million fund is available from 1 August 2020 to support communities over the next two years.
The CCRF allows the success of the Community Awareness and Preparedness Grant Fund (CAP Fund) to continue on a larger scale. Like the CAP Fund, the purpose of the CCRF is to provide assistance and support for community groups working with priority populations as they rebuild and recover from the impacts of COVID-19.
The CCRF will be targeted towards initiatives that support priority groups, which include Māori, Pacific, ethnic migrant communities, and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) groups.
Who can apply?
The CCRF is for community groups that come from a cross-section of their local community.
Examples of community groups who can apply are:
- Local marae, whānau, hapū, iwi
- Multicultural councils
- Ethnic community organisations
- Faith based, religious and church groups
- Community access radio stations
- Community Hubs
- Not for profit organisations and social enterprises
- Other community-based interest groups.
The CCRF enables these groups to focus on community wellbeing and efforts to help promote social inclusion.
