Nowra announced as an IRCF community
The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) and The Snow Foundation announced a $2.5 million, multi-year partnership that will help boost the confidence, ability and skills of not-for-profit organisations (NFPs) in Batemans Bay, Nowra and Ulladulla.
To kick start the program, each community received up to $175,000 in Start-Up Grants for NFPs. The first step of the IRCF program was to bring local leaders together. Normally this would be done face to face, but given the restrictions around the Covid19 pandemic, these were held online in early May 2020.
The IRCF Shoalhaven program will see FRRR work with local NFPs over a five-year period to determine how they can best help themselves, so they can effectively focus on what they set out to do to help their community.
