With much of the country enjoying a good season, it is the ideal time to ensure your community is prepared for the next drought. That’s why developing a program focused on strengthening and building drought preparedness in regional communities is important. 

Through the Helping Regional Communities Prepare for Drought Initiative, with the Australian Government’s support, the Foundation for Rural Regional Renewal (FRRR) are investing in the future, enabling agriculture-dependent communities to identify and act on their drought preparedness priorities at a grassroots level.

It will do this by investing in projects that seek to strengthen social and community networking, support, engagement and wellbeing by delivering a tailored package of support that includes:

  • Community Impact Grants: Working with locally led community organisations to develop and deliver a program of support to strengthen community networks, capabilities and facilities that support drought preparedness (delivered by FRRR); and
  • Community Leadership Activities: Supporting community members to develop their leadership skills to contribute to drought resilience in their community (delivered by ARLF).
