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. The objectives of the program are to:   

  • 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.
