Quilpie Sport and Recreation Inc is one of 91 projects to receive The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) Small Grants for Rural Communities Funding and the next round of funding considerations opens today.
The Quilpie Grants sees FRRR hand over $3,732 to support the wellbeing, flexibility and fitness of local residents in Quilpie, by training volunteer fitness instructors and purchasing gym equipment for the club.
The Grants program aims at enabling locally based not-for- profit community groups in rural, regional and remote Australia to access funding that supports locally-led projects across a variety of areas.
FRRR CEO, Natalie Egleton, says the projects funded this round again confirm the need in rural, regional and remote Australia for funding to support local priorities.
“At the heart of the longevity and popularity of FRRR’s Small Grants program is its ability to fund a wide range of community projects. Because of the flexibility of this program and our special tax status, we can support community groups to implement projects that tackle local issues.
Small Grants for Rural Communities is a collaborative program, administered by FRRR.
The next round of the program opens 14 February. Application details will be available on FRRR’s website, via the Grants Calendar.
The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) was established in 2000 to support the renewal of rural, regional and remote communities in Australia through partnerships with the private sector, philanthropy and governments.
