FRRR – Strengthening Rural Communities Grants
February 23, 2021
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.
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. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and assessed quarterly.
Grants of up to $10,000 are available in the Small and Vital funding stream.
What can be funded?
A broad range of charitable projects are considered under this program, including:
- Delivering, or providing activities, events, programs and services
- Purchasing or hiring equipment and materials
- Community infrastructure projects
- Organisational capacity building
- Community resource development
Round 8 of Small and Vital grants close on the 23rd of February 2021
