Latest Grants in Action
A key part of FRRR's role is sharing - sharing details of grant programs, successes and great ideas.
Stories about connecting communities, showing local leaders how others have solved a particular issue, and highlighting the needs and gaps in rural and regional Australia.
If you have a local success story and you'd like to be in the news, we'd love to hear from you! If you're looking for particular stories from our programs, explore these links:
- Enable & Engage stories - Programs that help communities to help themselves. This includes Small Grants for Rural Communities, CATCH, CARA, Working in Dairy Communities and Heywire Youth Innovation grants
- Educate stories - Helping children and adult learners enjoy educational equality, from cradle to career, through REAPing Rewards, Seeds of Renewal and the Back to School Program
- Recover & Strengthen stories - Helping communities affected by disaster events through medium to long-term recovery through the RRR, STEPS and GR&W programs
- Industries & Places stories - Local or industry programs that encourage communities to be self-sustaining, resilient and adaptable, including the Lachlan Region and Goulburn Valley grants programs
