In 2020 Regional Arts Victoria worked in partnership with Regional Development Victoria, Bushfire Recovery Victoria and Creative Victoria on the Creative Recovery Small Grants Program.
The Creative Recovery Small Grants Program supported individual artists and organisations based in six local government authority areas of Alpine, East Gippsland, Indigo, Mansfield, Towong and Wangaratta.
50 projects were funded that focused on community connection, engagement and resilience for communities impacted by the 2019-20 bushfires in regional Victoria.
