Community Recovery Committees help individuals and communities get back on their feet.
They can coordinate information, resources, and services in support of an affected community, establish priorities and provide information and advice to the affected community and recovery agencies.
Groups will assist local governments and communities to help shape recovery, grants and support programs that reflect the community’s needs, and are made up of representatives from communities within bushfire-affected areas.
Each community committee will be established once the community is ready by Bushfire Recovery Victoria and local councils.
They will be supported by the Victorian Government’s Bushfire Recovery Victoria.
