Catholic Emergency Relief Australia (CERA)
The first round of grants from Catholic Emergency Relief
Australia to support the ongoing recovery from last summer’s bushfires has been
awarded. With at least $100,000 available, 24 groups applied for approximately
$400,000 in funding to support various programs and projects across New South
Wales, Victoria and South Australia. Fifteen organisations were successful in
seeking grants, receiving a total of $110,000 to support trauma counselling and
mental health, as well as community-building initiatives.
