FRRR Small Grants for Rural Communities
Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal: Small Grants for Rural Communities
Over $350,000 in grants are available to benefit small rural, regional and remote Australian communities. Grants will be made in amounts up to $5,000. This collaborative approach is designed to: make better, targeted use of funds; improve access to philanthropy for regional communities; provide a simple application process; and enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of Trusts and Foundations who wish to support small community organisations.
WHAT CAN BE FUNDED?
Not-for-profit community based organisations from communities in rural, regional and remote locations in Australia can apply for funds to support projects and activities that offer clear public benefit (are for a charitable purpose) and clearly address a need in the community in the areas of social and community welfare, economic, environmental, health, education or cultural development.
- Projects located in communities with a population of 10,000 or less will receive priority.
- Organisations must have an ABN or Incorporation Certificate.
- Organisations/projects demonstrating community partnerships are preferred to multiple applications from one
community (please submit only one application per organisation).
- Projects with clearly defined objectives, time-frames and evaluation strategies will be preferenced. (Projects should
be undertaken from February 2016 to February 2017 as projects cannot be funded retrospectively).
Applications due Monday 5 October, 5pm.
