The Community Rebuilding Trust (CRT) was established with the aim of supporting the rebuilding and re-establishing efforts of disaster affected communities.

The CRT is part of a larger community rebuilding initiative called BizRebuild, established by the Business Council of Australia, to respond to community need following disasters and emergencies. By donating to the CRT, funds will be distributed in partnership with BizRebuild.

BizRebuild is being overseen by an Advisory Committee chaired by General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove (Retd) and will target initiatives for affected communities, such as:

  • Providing financial assistance to replace lost tools and office equipment so workers can return to work
  • Providing temporary business premises, including demountable buildings, so small businesses can re-open their doors
  • Sending in financial and business recovery experts to help small businesses cut through red tape and plan a future, and
  • Rebuilding destroyed community facilities.

If you are a business wanting to become involved in BizRebuild, you can read more about the purpose and work of the program on the
Business Council of Australia website.
