Foundation for Regional & Rural (FRRR) - Tackling Tough Times Together Grants - Closing 25 Feb!

FRRR has a number of grants that open at different times of the year that aim to support a wide range of not-for-profit community organisations in rural, regional and remote Australia.

Tackling Tough Times Together Grant Program

The Tackling Tough Times Together grant program helps communities access the resources they need to support one another through the ongoing effects of the drought. The program has a strong preference to support grassroots organisations based in drought-affected regions over those delivering services to, but not based in affected regions. Projects led by local communities will be given strong preference.

Grants are available for a broad range of community-led initiatives that directly and clearly benefit local communities. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and assessed quarterly.

Two tiers of grants are currently available:

Up to $20,000 – projects to be finalised within 18 months of approval;

Up to $60,000 – projects to be finalised within 18 months of approval;

TTT - Round 16 applications are now open, due 25 February 2020 for funding awarded in late May 2020.
