Regions Share Grant Funding From FRRR

November 29, 2023 4:51 pm in by

Five local community associations will be getting key funding from the Foundation of Rural Regional Renewal (FRRR), as part of the latest round of the Strengthening Rural Communities grants.

Groups in Brukunga, Mount Torrens, Murray Bridge, Mannum and Kingscote were successful in their applications, joining 14 others in South Australia.

The Lower Murray Vintage Engine & Machinery Club and Mannum Progress Association both received funding to foster community connection and economic recovery following the floods, while Yankalilla Youth Arts have also received $10,000 dollars each for their kid’s magazine called Mini Mag, which helps develop skills and support young people’s creativity post-pandemic.

The Brukunga Community Association has received money for a community hall and garden, while Mount Torrens Soldiers Memorial Hall will be able to install heating and cooling in their community hub.

FRRR’s Place Portfolio Lead Jill Karena says it’s inspiring to see where their money is going, and what it does for the community.

“One thing that keeps me going is that we have so many amazing small communities in rural and regional Australia,” Ms Karena said.

“The kind of projects they come up with is just phenomenal, and it’s amazing to see what they can achieve with such as a small amount of money.”
