A call for more investment in local community groups, so they are better equipped to play a key role in building community resilience ahead of climate, natural disasters and other disruptions, is among the series of recommendations to come out of a three-year research project.
Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal
The know and how to ensure the long-term vitality of rural and remote Australia.
FRRR is calling on leaders of not-for-profit organisations and community groups across remote, rural and regional Australia to tell it like it is in the Foundation’s inaugural Heartbeat of Rural Australia study.
FRRR has awarded eight grants totalling $280,000 to a range of local community groups across Bega Valley and Glen Innes Severn through the INFPC program.
Have your say to help us understand how community groups and not-for-profits in remote, rural and regional Australia are faring – survey opens Monday 30 August.
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
including more than…
for disaster projects
for learning, education
for building community
