Latest News

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, ANZ Seeds of Renewal, Community and Philanthropy Partnership Week (CPPW), and our Heywire Youth Innovation grants programs.
  • 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 Tackling Tough Times Together program, and the VBAF-funded 2009 Victorian Bushfire grants program.
  • Industries & Places stories - Local or industry programs that encourage communities to be self-sustaining, resilient and adaptable, including the Social Innovation Fund, Innovation for Community Impact, Aussie Cotton Farmers Grow Communities, Fast-Track Ag Innovation, and the Gardiner Dairy Foundation Working in Dairy Communities grants programs.

This edition showcases just how variable the needs are in rural communities: from picnic tables for pre-schoolers, to inspiring inter-generational initiatives and stress workshops; whitegoods, flooring and new AV equipment. We also have new grant programs, and a new website.
