ClosedGrant Opened: 6th of June 2022 - 9:00 am Closed: 18th of July 2022 - 5:00 pm Value: Up to $10,000 Run By: Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal Further Information: https://frrr.org.au/funding/people/heywire-youth-innovation-grants/

FRRR and our donor partners collaborate with ABC Heywire to help communities take action on the ideas generated by young Australians who attend the annual Heywire Regional Youth Summit.

Funding is available for communities across Australia to adopt, adapt and act on one of the ideas developed by these Australians at the Heywire Youth Ideas Lab.

The six ideas for 2022 are:

  • The Allies Project -  How might we celebrate the strength of regional LGBTQIA+ people and educate rural communities on the importance of being an ally?
  • Hands on Learning - How might we support young people to learn in ways that work for them?
  • Take Care - How might we promote healthier communities in regional Australia?
  • SPIN: Supporting People In Need - How might we improve morale in regional communities?
  • Triple H: Humanity Helping Homelessness - How might we reduce homelessness and support people who are experiencing it?
  • Fusion Festival - How might we raise cultural awareness and stop racism in regional communities?

The projects can be adapted for your community, but must also do one of the following:

  1. Build community resilience
  2. Develop organisational resilience and capacity
  3. Enhance environmental sustainability
  4. Foster cultural vibrancy
  5. Encourage lifelong education & training
  6. Strengthen the local economy
  7. Improve community health & social wellbeing

Projects must be undertaken between November 2022 to December 2023.

Projects must take place in regional Australia, as defined by ABC Heywire – they must be outside of Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

Projects must address a local issue.
