Investing in Not-for-Profit Capacity in Regional NSW: Community Insights Report
Commencing in early 2021, Investing in Not-for-Profit Capacity in Regional NSW (INFPC) was a place-based program designed and delivered by FRRR that ran in three communities affected by the 2019/20 Black Summer bushfires – Bega Valley, Glen Innes, and Taree and Wingham.
This Community Insights Report captures our shared learnings and the future priorities and opportunities identified, for communities, their supporters, and interested donor partners.

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.
