The Strengthening Rural Communities (SRC) program aims to give the thousands of small remote, rural and regional communities across Australia an opportunity to access funding to support broad community needs. 

Three funding streams are available:

  1. Rebuilding Regional Communities (RRC): grants up to $10,000 to respond to ongoing impacts and recovery from the COVID pandemic;
  2. Bushfire Recovery: grants up to $25,000 for 2019/20 bushfire recovery; and
  3. Small & Vital: grants up to $10,000 for broad initiatives that strengthen local people, places, and climate solutions with a preference for smaller communities (populations under 15,000).

Grants are available for a broad range of grassroots, community-led initiatives that directly and clearly benefit local communities. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and assessed quarterly.
