Objectives

  • 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 medium-term needs of drought affected communities. Three streams of grants are available:

  • Up to $20,000;
  • Up to $60,000: Applicants must initially speak to the FRRR Program Manager before lodging an application; and
  • Up to $150,000: Applications for this stream are by Expression of Interest, and applicants must speak with the TTTT Program Manager before submitting an Expression of Interest. Multi-year projects are welcomed.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Community groups and not-for-profit organisations with an ABN or Incorporation Certificate.
  • 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.
  • Please note no specific tax status is required.
  • Groups with outstanding final reports are not eligible to apply unless a time extension has been granted. We encourage groups to complete their final reports so that they can then apply.
  • Projects must be located in and benefit a drought-affected region.

Criteria for large-scale and multi-year projects up to $60,000 and $150,000

  • Provide broader, more medium-term impact – multi-year grants will be considered;
  • 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.
  • Please Note: that applicants must speak to the FRRR Program Manager before lodging an application to the two larger streams, and a written Expression of Interest is required for the up to $150,000 grants.
