Impacts and Insights
Our grant programs have a national impact
Since 2000, FRRR has distributed more than $80 million to around 9,500 projects across rural, regional and remote Australian communities. On average, for every dollar we invest, a further $3 are contributed either in cash or in-kind by the local community. For some communities, the leverage is even greater.
This means that together with our fellow donors, at a minimum, we have helped to implement $340 million worth of projects, all of which enhance the lives of those living in rural, regional and remote Australia.
Our investment stretches the length and breadth of the nation. The nature of small grants makes it difficult to illustrate the wider and ongoing community impacts, but we encourage you to peruse our Annual Reviews, Reports and Evaluations, and explore our Map of Projects, through which you can search our project database by entering a postcode or town name.
