2020 grant recipients & NRCF team

2021 Community Grants Round is NOW OPEN

NRCF is dedicated to improving the lives of those less fortunate in our community. Our annual Community Grants Round is an opportunity for us to support a wide range of charitable organisations across the Northern Rivers region and help them in the important work that they do in our community.

In response to critical issues impacting the Northern Rivers community, the Community Grants Program will offer streams of funding that focus on four priority areas:

1) Projects that address the social, economic, cultural and/or educational disadvantage in our region.

2) Supporting the conservation of our natural environment, by conserving and restoring natural ecosystems, protecting threatened species, building community skills and education, and/or dealing with local pollution.

3) Recovery & Resilience: supporting smaller community organisations in their recovery from COVID-19 and/or recent natural disasters, specifically those organisations who have ‘fallen through the gaps’ in state & federal funding, such as volunteer driven organisations.

4) Housing & Homelessness: projects that focus on the prevention of homelessness and/or provide accommodation and support services for those most vulnerable.

The grants round opens on Wednesday August 4 and closes on Monday September 6.
