Strengthening Rural Communities

The Strengthening Rural Communities (SRC) program aims to give small rural, regional and remote communities across Australia an opportunity to access funding to support broad community needs. 

Grants are available for a broad range of grassroots, community-led initiatives that directly and clearly benefit local communities. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and assessed quarterly.

Future Drought Fund’s Networks to Build Drought Resilience program.

Community organisations and networks can access a share of $4.5 million under the Networks to Build Drought Resilience program, with grants for action on drought resilience. The program is also being delivered by the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR).

The Networks to Build Drought Resilience program will support the community organisations, networks and infrastructure that help people and communities prepare for, and live through, times of drought. The program will fund events, activities, training and small-scale infrastructure that assist communities to build their capacity.  Applications are now open and close at 5pm AEST, 5 July 2021. Grant recipients will be announced October 2021. For more information or to apply visit FRRR’s website –
