Networks to Build Drought Resilience

Grant Closes: 15th of November 2021 Value: $10,000 to $150,000 Run By: Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal Further Information: https://frrr.org.au/funding/disaster-resilience-and-climate-solutions/future-drought-fund-networks-to-build-drought-resilience/

This program, supported by the Australian Government under the Future Drought Fund, helps remote, rural and regional communities, and farmers, become more prepared for, and resilient to, the impacts of drought. It is designed to build community capacity by strengthening social and community networking, support, engagement and wellbeing.

The Future Drought Fund’s Networks to Build Drought Resilience Program will fund community-led events, projects, activities, training, and small-scale infrastructure that assist communities to build their capacity by strengthening social and community networking, support, engagement, and wellbeing to be more prepared for, and resilient to, the impacts of drought.

Projects must relate to one or more opportunity types:

  1. Projects that strengthen the capacity, capability, and coordination of professional, social or community networks in agriculture-dependent communities to build drought resilience.
  2. Events that facilitate professional, social and community connection to build an understanding of risks posed by drought and climate change in agriculture-dependent communities throughout Australia.
  3. Training to improve the skills, understanding and capacity of community network members to participate in community risk management, planning and community-driven projects that build drought resilience.
  4. Small-scale community infrastructure projects to foster connectedness, improve wellbeing and make community facilities resilient to the impacts of drought.

The program will offer three tiers of grants to not-for-profit organisations, and Round 2 aims to fund approximately 65 projects as follows:

  • $10,000 to $20,000; (approximately 30 projects, events, or activities will be funded per round)
  • $20,000 to $50,000; (approximately 32 projects, events, or activities will be funded per round)
  • $50,000 to $150,000 (approximately 5 projects, events, or activities will be funded per round)

Projects that are community-led and focus on locally defined solutions to building drought resilience will be prioritised.
