FRRR ABC Heywire Youth Innovation Grants program

17 Apr 2019

How can we make life better for young people living in regional Australia?

At the 2019 Heywire Regional Youth Summit, 50 young people set out to answer this question.

They developed seven project ideas will be funded as pilot projects in regional Australia through the FRRR ABC Heywire Youth Innovation Grants program.

The Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal (FRRR) and its donor partners offer more than $100,000 in seed funding annually to help at least 10 not-for-profit community organisations make these projects a reality.

The project themes are:

  • C.E.O. - Conquer Every Opportunity - How might we help young people start businesses?
  • Walk & Talk - How might we encourage conversations about mental health in a safe and relaxed environment?
  • Shed Happens - How might we help people understand what really happens on the farm?
  • Bridge - How might we connect young people to services to feel like their issues are heard?
  • Ask Away - How might we get people to ask questions of minority groups that they’re too afraid to ask?
  • Adulting - How might we help young people adapt to life away from home?
  • Our Place - How might we connect young people in rural communities?

Funding is available to assist not-for-profit community based organisations in rural, regional and remote Australia.

Further details, including the guidelines are available at FRRRABC Heywire Youth Innovation Grants.  

Applications close 5pm AEST Tuesday 14 May 2019.
