Thank you for visiting Aussie Farmers Foundation’s grant program page. We help rural and regional communities in Australia facing tough times and as a Public Ancillary Fund we do this by giving grants to eligible charities who are running projects to support the wellbeing, resilience and sustainability of these communities. Unfortunately we are unable to provide grants to individuals or families.

Please note our Grassroots grants program is not currently accepting applications however Aussie Farmers Foundation has provided $27,000 in funding to be granted to support Australian communities impacted by natural disasters, including drought.

This funding is being administered through the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal’s Strengthening Rural Communities Small and Vital Grants Program and is open to not-for-profit community organisations in rural, regional, and remote Australia that have an ABN or Incorporation Certificate. Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status is not required for this program.

Small and Vital grants gives small rural, regional, and remote communities the opportunity to apply for grants of up to $10,000 to support a broad range of community needs.

Applications for the current round must be made directly to FRRR and received by 5 pm AEST, Tuesday 24 September 2019. For more information and to apply go here.
