Are you a community-minded individual with a project for your local area?

The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation’s (RASF) 2019 round of Community Futures Grants has opened with grants up to $25,000 available to fund projects in rural or regional New South Wales.

Applicants must partner with a local community organisation to be eligible and provide a clear plan on how they intend to complete their project.

RAS Foundation Manager, Cecilia Logan, says the Community Futures Grant allows proactive community members to apply for funds to complete local projects that wouldn’t normally attract funding,

“The community project should enhance economic and social outcomes within your community; fostering community collaboration and sustainability,” Ms Logan said.

This year’s winners included a Young Farmer’s Challenge trailer for Leeton Show Society, construction of a multi-purpose equestrian arena in Walbundrie and the redevelopment of an agricultural plot at Condobolin High School to name a few.  

Applications must be made online and will close February, 10, 2019.
