Small Grants for Rural Communities is a program of the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR), which is collectively funded through a range of valued partnerships. The 33rd round of the program is now open, with grants of up to $5,000 available to not-for-profit organisations in small rural, regional and remote Australian
Projects and activities should offer a clear public benefit for communities in rural, regional and remote locations. Applications from communities with a population of 10,000 or less will receive priority.
Full details of the program, and application details, are available here.
