Industries and Places

FRRR has a proud history of funding local place-based programs in rural and regional Australia. A number of our donors have strong connections with either different geographic areas across Australia, or with particular industries. We work with them, in consultation with local community organisations, to design and implement appropriate industry and place-based programs to address issues and needs.

The following programs are currently available.
