Small Grants for rural communities

To improve access to philanthropy for regional communities, provide a simple application process, and enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of Trusts and Foundations who wish to support small community organisations.

The Small Grants for Rural Communities is the longest running and broadest program FRRR offers, opening twice per year.

In 2016, the SGRC program celebrates 30 rounds of grant-making. The program has supported hundreds of small communities in that time, investing millions of dollars into local projects.

It is a great example of a collaborative program supported by various partners, which has the flexibility to address issues that make a difference to the sustainability of rural, regional and remote communities. 

Grants of up to $5,000 are available for projects and activities that offer clear public benefit for communities  in rural, regional or remote Australia. Priority is given to communities of 10,000 or fewer.
