Applications now open for community grants in Eden-Monaro

Dept of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications

The Albanese Government continues to invest in regional, rural and remote communities, with grants of up to $10,000 available to community groups across Australia.

The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal’s (FRRR) Strengthening Rural Communities program supports local organisations uplift their communities, following significant disruption from COVID-19.

Local organisations in Eden-Monaro are encouraged to apply for the grants to support liveability, sustainability, and resilience initiatives – from workshops and education programs that will increase community engagement, to equipment and facilities improvements at community hubs.

The last round, delivered in November, saw 55 local-led projects across the country share in over $470,000 in grants, including two in the Eden-Monaro townships of Bowning and Numeralla.

The Albanese Government has invested $5 million from 2022 to 2024 in the Rebuilding Regional Communities stream of the FRRR’s Strengthening Rural Communities program.

This is the final round of the Rebuilding Regional Communities stream, and applications close 5pm AEDT 26 February 2024.
