The Gardiner Dairy Foundation and the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) are inviting applications for the 2018 Working in Dairy Communities Small Grants program.
Now in its 16th year, the program offers $100 000 in small grants up to $5 000 to not-for-profit community groups based in Gippsland, northern Victoria and south west Victoria.
The funds are designed to support projects that improve infrastructure and community facilities, and address local issues to strengthen the small rural communities that support Victoria’s dairy farmers.
To assist community groups in translating their local ideas into a suitable project, the Gardiner Dairy Foundation and FRRR are running one free grant seeking workshop in each of the three dairy regions.
Referencing the Strengthening Small Dairy Communities Grant Seeker toolkit these sessions will offer invaluable advice for community groups wanting to put together a competitive grant application, for this or any other program.
