Our Telstra Connected Communities Grants, support Australia’s remote, rural, and regional communities with $600,000 to foster inclusion and resilience over the next three years.
In partnership with the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal, grants of up to $10,000 are available to not-for-profits to help them build resilient, sustainable, and liveable communities. If you know of a community group or not-for-profit organisation that could use a hand – the Connected Communities Grant Program might be for them!

The program has three themes:

Resilient communities

that are well prepared and socially connected, with the ability to renew and recover together when disaster strikes;

Sustainable communities

that are diverse and inclusive, through planning for the health, wellbeing and prosperity of their people and planet;

Liveable communities

that have digital capability, helping to equip people with the skills to live, learn and work in a digital society.
Funds will be available for new or existing not-for-profit programs to help them scale their impact to help more Australians in rural and regional areas become better connected.

We provide a united voice

As the largest advocacy group in Tasmania and the only one that focuses exclusively on farming and the rural sector, the future of Tasmanian agriculture is our focus.
