The grant is the result of a partnership between the Australian Government and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR), which nationwide will provide $897,755 through 53 grants to support COVID-19 recovery in communities in rural, regional and remote parts of Australia.

This funding is part of FRRR’s largest ever small grants round, which will see 176 community groups share over $2.3 million in grants in total.

The COVID-19 recovery grants will support community projects ranging from $10,000 to up to $50,000, and are distributed through the Australian Government-funded Strengthening Rural Communities – Rebuilding Regional Communities (RRC) stream.

The Australian Government has committed $5 million from 2022 to 2024 to FRRR for the RRC stream.

Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Minister Catherine King said the grants invest in rebuilding communities that have taken longer to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic than more populated areas.

“Many of these communities are also struggling from the devastation of floods, bushfires and severe storms,” Ms King said.

“Our investment in this program supports vital community-led initiatives, which will substantially benefit people in the rural, regional and remote areas.”
