The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) is seeking applications for its Round 14 of Tackling Tough Times Together grant program to help communities access the resources they need to support one another through the ongoing effects of the drought.

This program is designed to provide flexible funding to support community-based activities that both help to relieve current stressors and symptoms, and most importantly, build capacity and resilience for the future.

  • Reduce social isolation by facilitating strong social cohesion and connection;
  • Support and engage the community in leadership development and skills training;
  • Support opportunities for social and educational participation and address disadvantage caused by the drought, for children and young people;
  • Reduce volunteer fatigue and build the capacity, capability and sustainability of local not-for-profit organisations to provide support to their communities, particularly where they are playing an increased role during the drought; and
  • Support local economic recovery or renewal through projects that stimulate economic activity and cash-flow within communities.

Grants are available for projects that directly benefit the immediate and long-term needs of drought affected communities. Three tiers of grants are available:

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

  • Organisations with and without DGR endorsement;
  • An organisation is eligible to submit one application per grant round.

FRRR considers all eligible applications on their merit. Due to the volume of applications received, applications are assessed based on the documentation received at the time of application.

  • Offer activities that could be repeated over a period of time;
  • Deliver larger-scale activities that provide short term relief to alleviate the impact of drought;
  • Support a coordinated approach with a regional focus;
  • Enhance resourcing, stability and continuity of events and programs being delivered by local not-for-profit organisations; and
  • Support the delivery of activities and services which cost more due to the remoteness of their location.
