$10k Grants for Drought Projects
Thursday, 26th June 2014 at 9:00 am

Grants of up to $10,000 are available for Not for Profits that help people affected by droughts in Queensland and the Northern Tablelands area of New South Wales.

There will also be a small number of grants of up to $50,000 available for projects that support more than one community, or involve a large-scale, one-off initiative.

The Tackling Tough Times Together funding, to be distributed by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal, will come from the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation (TFFF) for the Queensland grants and from Yulgilbar Foundation for the NSW grants.

FRRR CEO Alexandra Gartmann said the grants of up to $10,000 were available for Not for Profit initiatives that help people connect.

“We can’t make it rain but we know from previous experience in supporting drought-affected communities, and helping communities recover from floods, fires and cyclones, that many people need to talk about what is happening and hear how others are coping, while others just want to get on and do something,” she said.

“That’s why this program will fund community based mental health and wellbeing activities that help to relieve current stressors and symptoms, and most importantly, build capacity and resilience for the future. It can also support some of the activities that engage people in being active, exploring options and creating something that will stand the test of tough times.

“Like all our grant programs, the initiatives are driven by the community. So each application will reflect what each community needs and responds to. This could be holding a community event; or stress management classes; learning yoga; or perhaps putting on a play – any initiative that facilitates social connection or creates opportunities for people to share their issues and concerns; build skills and knowledge; or reduce the potential for long-term mental health issues.”

FRRR has also invited other trusts, foundations, companies or individuals to contribute to this program.
