ANZ Seeds of Renewal is a grants program designed to help build vibrant and sustainable rural communities, to ensure the ongoing prosperity of regional Australia. The program is in its 21st year and celebrates the collaboration and commitment between ANZ & FRRR to shape a world where people and communities thrive.
This round, $250,000 is available to fund grants up to $15,000 for not-for-profit organisations in remote, rural and regional areas to support the ongoing prosperity of regional Australia.
Funding is available for projects aligned to four focus areas:
- Environmental sustainability: initiatives that restore and conserve the natural environment or which contribute to lower carbon emissions, water stewardship and waste minimisation;
- Financial wellbeing: particularly for under-represented and disadvantaged people in the community, including initiatives that improve economic participation. For example, building financial literacy and vocational skills and providing access to meaningful work;
- Housing access: initiatives and programs that support those experiencing or at risk of homelessness or that provide supports for people living with disability; or
- Projects that assist local communities to thrive by either enabling vibrant communities where everyone can participate and build a better life, or creating sustainable communities that help deliver demonstrable medium to long term economic sustainability.
