The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation (RASF) is offering opportunities for community-minded people to be awarded up to $25,000 in funding for drought and bushfire recovery community projects in their local area.
Grants up to $25,000
Applications close on 7 February 2021
The 2021 Grants will focus on bushfire and drought recovery projects. To be eligible, applicants must also be a resident of the rural NSW community the project will benefit.
What types of projects are eligible?
The RASF invites ideas that deliver strong community benefits and result in enhanced economic and social outcomes for your community. This year projects should assist the recovery and rebuilding of drought and bushfire affected towns. Projects that involve collaboration between people in your town and deliver sustained and broad community benefits will be highly regarded. Applicants will be passionate about rural and regional NSW and have a good understanding of any issues affecting their community.
Infrastructure for local showgrounds and Show Societies are eligible. The improvements must demonstrate that they go beyond benefiting just the local Show Society in running the local Show, but rather enabling broader use by other community groups to run on-going projects or programs.
What projects are not eligible?
While the criteria for this program are broad, the RASF does not fund wages, consultant’s fees, one-off events, operational and administration costs, travel or accommodation.
