Grants are available for a broad range of grassroots, community-led initiatives that directly and clearly benefit local communities.

Projects must clearly demonstrate a focus on one activity from the following seven activity areas. Click on the activity to reveal examples of what could be funded.

  1. Building community resilience
  2. Developing organisational resilience and capacity
  3. Enhancing environmental sustainability
  4. Fostering cultural vibrancy
  5. Lifelong learning and education
  6. Economic strength
  7. Improving community health and social wellbeing

$ Available: Grants of up to $150 000 are now available across drought-affected communities nationally.

Community groups and not-for-profit organisations with an ABN or Incorporation Certificate are welcome to apply for funding for projects located in and benefiting drought-affected regions. No specific tax status is required.
