Grant Open: Strengthening Rural Communities

October 9, 2020 by in News

About

The 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.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and assessed quarterly.

Amounts available

There are two funding streams available:

1. Small & Vital – up to $10,000 grants available. Communities in non-metropolitan areas with fewer than 15,000 people are prioritised.

2. Bushfire Recovery – up to $25,000 grants available. Projects that enhance the recovery of communities affected by the Sept 2019 to Feb 2020 bushfires are eligible.
