The CATCH program was established in response to the identified need for an independent and flexible source of funding, to support worthwhile activities in the areas of culture and tourism, the arts, history and heritage across rural and remote Australia.

For the first time, FRRR is providing up to $70,000 to assist not-for-profit organisations in regional Australian communities ‘adopt’ and pilot one of seven Heywire project ideas.
The STEPS program is a joint initiative between the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) and the Department of Planning and Community Development. Since the 2009 fires many individuals and community groups across fire-affected areas have taken on key leadership roles to help drive their community’s rebuilding and recovery. The STEPS program is designed to enhance leadership in rural communities, improve the ability of not-for-profit groups to develop and implement community projects and ensure community groups avoid experiencing the effects of volunteer fatigue.
