In November we caught up with Australian Business Volunteers (ABV) as they worked beside Cobargo residents in developing a plan and seeking resources to build back better.
By working together, this rural NSW community created their own story, a vision and the plan for a resilient and innovative future Cobargo.
With ABV’s assistance, the plan has been brought to life not only in the community, but in complex grant applications.
Liz Mackinlay, CEO ABV, has championed these funding applications to ensure that those affected by the bushfires receive the grants under the $250 million set aside for NSW in the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund. These funds could enable damaged rural communities to create strong vibrant economic towns if indeed they do receive them. See ABC interview on this issue.
Join Liz and the Cobargo community in their unique work together, November 2020.

We hope to continue spreading the messages of our non-for-profits and corporates that are doing social good, working beside our local, small initiatives.
