FRRR GRANTS FOR SMALL RURAL COMMUNITIES NOW OPEN

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Member for Swan Hill, Peter Walsh, is advising not-for-profit organisations that the Small Grants for Rural Communities Program is once again being offered by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR). 

“The small grants program for small rural Australian communities will offer about $900,000 in grants to benefit people in rural and remote communities during 2010,” Mr Walsh said.

“The grants of up to $5,000 are on offer to small rural & regional not-for-profit organisations that have projects and activities that aid the sustainability of their community.

“Applications from communities with a population of 10,000 or less will receive priority.”

Currently, applications that support the following areas of interest will be given preference:

-   Community Infrastructure

-   Community Development involving Disadvantaged Children or Young People

-   Resettlement of Immigrants in rural Australia

-   Drought affected areas (Exceptional Circumstances Declared)

There are two rounds of Small Grants. Closing dates are 29 March and 30 September 2010.

“This round of FRRR funding focuses on small communities, and I encourage the many small communities in our Electorate to apply,” Mr Walsh said.

Application forms, guidelines and further information can be obtained from the FRRR website http://www.frrr.org.au, freecall 1800 170 020 or contact Mr Walsh’s office at 274 Campbell St Swan Hill.
