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 impacting Queensland and northern NSW.
Grants of up to $15,000 are available across most of Queensland and selected shires in the New South Wales Northern Tablelands (see table on linked page). A small number of grants valued at up to $50,000 are also available for larger-scale and multi-year projects that have a broader impact. We are currently inviting expressions of interest in these grants – please contact the Program Manager to discuss your project idea.
Funding will support community-based activities that both help to relieve current stressors and symptoms, but most importantly, build capacity and resilience for the future. Funds could also support activities that engage people in being active, exploring options and creating something that will stand the test of tough times.
This program was founded by the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation (to support Queensland communities) and the Yulgilbar Foundation (to support New South Wales). Other donor partners include the Qantas Foundation and individual supporters. We welcome contributions from other donors to this program. To discuss your involvement, please call 1800 170 020.
