Small Grant Programme

Funder:  Highways and Byways

Grant Background: In 2020 Highways and Byways seeks applications from organisations in the areas where the MSS sisters have lived and worked over the last 76 years, especially rural and regional areas.

This year they are focussing the program on understanding our interconnectedness to and with all living things on our fragile planet. The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH).

Our vast continent is experiencing widespread persistent dry conditions, especially across the Murray Darling Basin Region. This means ongoing challenges for communities struggling to make a living in areas where the land is changing and ‘business as usual’ is not an option.

$ Available: Up to $3 000.00.

Eligibility:  They are able to fund community groups or organisations which can demonstrate that they are at minimum an Incorporated Association or similarly constituted entity. Highways and Byways does not fund individuals. You must be located within the regions they specify.

Key Dates: Closes 28 February 2020.


Happy to chat if you need a hand with your application. Good luck, Melanie
