Different grants for different needs

In line with FRRR’s aim of championing the economic and social strength of Australia’s rural, regional and remote communities, we operate a number of grant programs. Each grant program has individual parameters and areas of focus.

In all cases, however, the grant must be used for a charitable purpose that benefits the residents of Australia's rural, regional or remote communities.

Our grant programs open at different times throughout the year. Some are annual, while others offer multiple times to apply each year. Our Grant Calendar is updated regularly and outlines the grants that are currently open.

We currently group our grant programs into five areas. Click on any one of the panels to learn more.


Please note: The encouragement or advancement of sport, recreation and social activities is not considered a charitable activity by the Australian Taxation Office.

Therefore, applications from sporting organisations need to clearly demonstrate a benefit to the wider community and should clearly indicate which other local organisations are involved.

If you wish to support any of these programs as a donor or program partner, please visit our Donate section.
