Community Grants Now Available to Support Local Projects
Applications are now open for the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal’s (FRRR) Strengthening Rural Communities program (SRC) which helps to connect communities with targeted grants for grass roots projects.
Building on the success of FRRR’s Small Grants for Rural Communities initiative, the expanded SRC program provides larger grants of up to $10,000 to better support the needs of community groups who are committed to championing change at a local level.
Scenic World is proud to commit $24,000 to the SRC program annually through its philanthropic program, Scenic World Shared, which invests three per cent of all profits into valuable partnerships that support the Blue Mountains community and environment.
A total of $11,600 in funding was awarded to Blue Mountains community groups in the latest round of funding, including:
- The Blue Mountains Food Co-Op, which received $4,100 for two programs; the Nourishing Families program and the Edible Garden Trail event
- The Blue Mountains Artists Network, which received $5,000 to fund a marketing campaign with the Blue Mountains Accommodation and Tourism Association
- The Blue Mountains Women’s Health & Resource Centre, which received $1,500 for a community-based photography exhibition which will showcase the beauty of ageing women
- The Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre, which was awarded $1,000 to fund the Blue Shorts Film Festival in May 2019
Grant applications are now open until June 25, 2019.
