The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) Small Grants for Rural Communities offers not-for-profit organisations grants of up to $5,000 for projects that offer clear public benefit for communities in rural, regional or remote Australia. Priority is given to communities of 10,000 or fewer.
