The know and how to ensure the long-term vitality of rural and remote Australia.
FRRR has awarded $1,413,319 to 33 remote, rural and regional communities across Australia for locally-led initiatives that will help build their region’s resilience to drought through the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund’s Networks to Build Drought Resilience program.
Latest report: Supporting community led approaches to disaster preparedness: Evaluation of the Get Ready Disaster Resilient: Future Ready pilots
Led by FRRR in partnership with Resilience NSW and researchers from the University of Sydney, the ‘Get Ready Disaster Resilient: Future Ready (DR:FR) pilots project’ worked with three diverse NSW communities to explore how best to ensure that rural communities are more disaster resilient and future ready.
Thank you to all the individuals from community groups and not-for-profits in remote, rural and regional Australia who shared their insights in our research survey. We look forward to sharing the results.
FRRR is seeking partners to join us and the Australian Government in co-funding the Future Drought Fund’s Networks to Build Drought Resilience program.
Our SRC program provides flexible funding so community leaders can address whatever issues they face. This could range from enhancing local community meeting places to providing resources for a kinder, or even transport for the elderly.
Together, we can achieve incredible results
