Small Grants Program

ClosedGrant Opened: 1st of February 2024 Closed: 15th of March 2024 - 5:00 pm Value: Up to $4,000 Run By: Highways and Byways Further Information: https://hb.org.au/grants/

Highways and Byways continues the work of the Missionary Sisters of Service (MSS) reaching out in hope and love to people socially and geographically isolated, strengthening community relationships and networks, developing leadership and empowering people to meet the challenges that confront them.

Since 1944 the MSS have travelled vast distances to reach people in all kinds of places and situations, and support those on the margins: geographically, culturally, spiritually, socially and economically.

Each year they provide small grants to community-led organisations for projects that address disadvantage and exclusion within towns and communities, especially in rural and regional Australia.

In 2024, they are offering grants up to $4,000 for projects that advance our program theme of ‘Valuing Community Connections in an Ancient Land’.

Community organisations can apply for grants up to $4,000 for:

  • Projects that recognise the wisdom and cultural identity of our First Nation’s peoples, and provide opportunities to protect and celebrate Indigenous identity and cultural connections, particularly through sharing knowledge, skills, or stories.
  • Projects with an ecological and environmental focus – that encourage rehabilitation and restoration, and encourage the intergenerational sharing of knowledge and skills for the sustainable or regenerative management of the land.
  • Community-focused projects – that encourage community connections and partnerships, build strong and resilient communities, alleviate isolation and loneliness and provide opportunities for leadership and personal and community-building skills.
