Resilient Australia Awards

The Resilient Australia Awards (RAAs) is a national program to recognise and promote initiatives which strengthen community disaster resilience across the nation.

The RAAs are open to everyone: individuals, not-for-profit organisations, small and large businesses, local and state government, schools, education institutions, research bodies and emergency service agencies.

Now in its 22nd year, the awards recognise outstanding contributions in each state and territory in seven categories: community, business, local government, government, school, mental health and photography. The program recognises a wide range of initiatives; with past projects centred on risk assessment and mitigation; education, training and research; and community engagement, as well as response and recovery.
