Strengthening Rural Communities
The Strengthening Rural Communities (SRC) program aims to give the thousands of small rural, regional and remote communities across Australia an opportunity to access funding to support broad community needs. Given the events of summer 2019/20, it has also been expanded to offer funding to support recovery in bushfire-affected communities.
The program criteria are deliberately flexible, and designed to be able to help communities address different needs and opportunities, as and when they emerge.
Grants are available for a broad range of grassroots, community-led initiatives that directly and clearly benefit local communities. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and assessed quarterly.
For inquiries and further details of any of the above mentioned grants feel free to contact Cat - Landcare Facilitator for UGLN on 03 5797 4405.
