The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) has invited community organisations in agriculture-dependent parts of Australia to apply for grants that build community preparedness for future drought.

Grants are available through two streams of Small Network Grants for initiatives designed to strengthen local networks and capabilities.

FRRR spokesperson Nina O’Brien said preparing for the inevitable dry times ahead was critical.

“Our Small Network Grants program empowers local organisations to strengthen the social fabric of their town or locality by identifying and acting on their region’s drought preparedness priorities, at a grassroots level, in ways that best suit their communities,” Ms O’Brien said.

“We look forward to seeing projects that will help community groups be better connected, informed, and resourced in the next drought.”

Applications close on March 26 with recipients announced in June.
