The Strengthening Regional Communities (SRC) Rebuilding Regional Communities (RRC) stream gives small remote, rural and regional communities across Australia the opportunity to access funds for a broad range of initiatives that directly and clearly benefit local communities.

Recognising the impacts of COVID-19 on communities, the Australian Government has partnered with FRRR to distribute $5 million from 2022 to 2024 to support community-led initiatives that:  

  • Enhance the process of recovery of remote, rural and regional communities from the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Reduce social isolation and foster stronger, more resilient remote, rural and regional communities; and/or  
  • Sustain local remote, rural and regional organisations and their work. 

Projects funded must align with one or more of the following charitable outcomes:

  • Bringing people and community organisations together to foster stronger, more resilient communities.
  • Fostering and celebrating a sense of identity, diversity and cultural connection within the community.
  • Supporting diverse groups within remote, rural and regional communities including, but not limited to, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, culturally and linguistically diverse, those living with disability, and LGBTQIA+.
  • Improving community health and social wellbeing.
  • Enabling people to develop skills, knowledge and confidence to lead and contribute to the prosperity and renewal of their community.
  • Building a sustainable volunteer base and/or supporting the wellbeing of volunteers.
  • Celebrating and resourcing volunteer-led efforts.
  • Increasing access and inclusion for vulnerable and disadvantaged groups, including remote communities.
  • Enhancing places where communities gather.

  • Reducing the divide on access to digital technology and connectivity for remote, rural and regional communities.
  • Enabling locally-led responses within rural, regional and remote communities endeavouring to reduce the impacts of the changing climate within their community.
