The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) is a not for profit organisation that brings together funding from governments, businesses, and philanthropy, in order to improve the lives of those living in rural, regional and remote Australia. Given the prevalence of emergency events (drought, fire, flood, cyclone and storm) in these areas, their work specifically supports emergency planning and community resilience.  They are a great source of funding for local communities, community organisations and non-government organisations.  Funds are made available at regular times throughout each year and requires an application, via their website.
