2022 Partnership Grants Open

27 June 2022

Eligible not-for-profits in Leeton are now invited to apply for a partnership grant, with the 2022 grant round now open until 31 August 2022.

FRRR and the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation (VFFF) have a shared belief in the critical role of not-for-profit (NFP) organisations in building and supporting vibrant communities, both socially and economically. So, it is essential that these critical organisations are resilient and able to support and respond to community needs.

The Investing in Rural Community Futures (IRCF) approach supports the abilities of NFP’s to retain and invest in their organisation through their people, processes, and systems. To date IRCF has invested in long-term viability of individual organisations’, and collaboration between NFPs who have identified common goals and needs in Junee, Leeton, and the Nambucca Valley.

Currently, FRRR is inviting applications for IRCF Partnership Grants to assist the community of Leeton. With the conclusion of the program in June 2024, the program is now offering its final grants.

For this grant round, applications must consider the needs of their local community and organisations beyond the IRCF program and endeavour to embed skills, processes and networks that collectively strengthen these organisations.

Building on current momentum, this round of IRCF funding will prioritise collaborative initiatives. FRRR will be supporting Partnership grants that best align to the priority areas (see Appendix) and the community roadmaps.

The round guidelines are available here.

All applicants must discuss their application with their local community facilitator to apply: Leeton – Kate Brabin Ph: 0418296805 E: ircfleeton@gmail.com
