The industry wide Victorian Alps Relief Auction held back in November raised over $18,800 for bushfire and Covid 19 relief for businesses impacted in 2020.

The Into Our Hands grants have been made possible through both the Victorian Alps Relief Auction set up by Amer Sports and also the Global Giving Foundation’s Australian Wildfires appeal.

Now you can apply for one of the grants via Into Our Hands. Each grant is worth up to $2500 and they are open for applications now until February 1. Both individuals and organisations can apply for support for projects that focus on community recovery.

Grants are expected to support the alpine communities, boost the town and help rebuild community life.

The specific communities targeted in the grants round include: Mansfield, Mount Buller, Bright, Harrietville, Hotham, Dinner Plain, Beechworth, Mount Buffalo, Porepunkah, Wandiligong, Rose River, Walhalla, Mount Baw Baw, Marysville, Lake Mountain, Mount Beauty, Falls Creek and close townships and surrounds.

You’ll find all the information to apply for the grant on the Into Our Hands website.
