The Tackling Tough Times Together grant program helps communities access the resources they need to support one another through the ongoing effects of the drought.
Grants are available for a broad range of grassroots, community-led initiatives that directly and clearly benefit local communities. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and assessed quarterly.
Three tiers of grants are available:
- Up to $20,000 – projects to be finalised within 18 months of approval;
- Up to $60,000 – projects to be finalised within 18 months of approval;
- Up to $150,000 – applications for this tier are by Expression of Interest, and multi-year projects (up to three years) are welcomed. Applicants must speak with the TTTT team to discuss their project before applying
Tackling Tough Times Together is a rolling grants program, which means that applications will be accepted at any time. The table below shows the expected dates that applications will be assessed throughout the year, and when funds will be awarded.
