Repair-Restore-Renew grants available to Qld and Vic
The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) has announced that its Repair-Restore-Renew (RRR) grants program is now open to rural and regional communities in Queensland and Victoria that were affected by the devastating 2010-2011 floods and / or cyclones.
In response to those flood and cyclone events, a number of philanthropic Trusts and Foundations donated funds to support the medium-to-long term recovery of regional, rural and remote communities across Australia.
The RRR program provides grants from $100 and up to $20,000 toward activities that aid community recovery from the 2010-2011 Floods and Cyclones. Some of the key criteria for grants include:
- Projects must directly relate to rural and regional Queensland or Victorian communities affected or impacted by riverine and/or flash flooding and/or cyclones during summer 2010-2011;
- Projects must benefit communities with a population of fewer than 10,000 people;
- Projects must be for a charitable purpose (benefit the wider community);
- Projects should contribute to community renewal and or rebuilding in the areas of social and community wellbeing, economic, environmental, health, education or culture;
- Projects must demonstrate a benefit to the community in the medium to long term recovery process (12-36 months); and
- Applicant organisations must have an ABN or Incorporation Certificate
Detailed program guidelines and application forms are available on the RRR pages on this site. FRRR also invites interested applicant organisations to contact them directly on 1800 170 020 to discuss possible projects.
Applications for this round close 24 August, 2012.
