Small Network Grants are now available to community organisations in regional and rural Australia to develop and deliver one-off events or initiatives to strengthen community networks and capabilities that build drought preparedness.

With the support of the Australian Government, this initiative is investing in the future by enabling agriculture-dependent communities to identify and act on their drought-preparedness priorities at a grassroots level and in ways that best suit their communities.

The Small Network Grants will fund networks, community events, training initiatives, community infrastructure, development and learning initiatives that help local people and communities to strengthen social capital and capability to prepare for future droughts.

Grants are available across two rounds in :
– Stream 1: Grants up to a maximum of $20,000; or
– Stream 2: Grants up to a maximum of $50,000 (dependent on location)
