Applications Open for ANZ Seeds of Renewal Grant Program!

Deadline: 17 August 2018

Applications are open for ANZ Seeds of Renewal which is a small grants program designed to help build vibrant and sustainable rural communities, to ensure the ongoing prosperity of regional Australia.

It is built on two key tenets:

  • Vibrant communities are diverse and inclusive with strong social capital, where everyone can participate and build a better life.
  • Sustainable communities innovate, expand and create opportunities that will deliver demonstrable medium-to-long-term economic benefit to the community, contributing to economic sustainability.

The program is independently administered by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR), which provides several grant programs across rural, regional and remote Australia. FRRR champions the economic and social strength of Australia’s rural, regional and remote communities through partnerships with the private sector, philanthropy and governments
