Strengthening Rural Communities – Small & Vital

Funder:  Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR)

Grant Background: The Strengthening Rural Communities (SRC) program aims to give the thousands of small rural, regional and remote communities across Australia an opportunity to access funding to support broad community needs.  Given the events of summer 2019/20, it has also been expanded to offer funding to support recovery in bushfire-affected communities.

The program criteria are deliberately flexible, and designed to be able to help communities address different needs and opportunities, as and when they emerge. Grants are available for a broad range of grassroots, community-led initiatives that directly and clearly benefit local communities.

$ Available: Up to $10 000.00.

Eligibility:  Communities in non-metropolitan areas with fewer than 15,000 people are prioritised.

Key Dates: Closes 24 November 2020.
