Supporting our community

We take pride in our programs that help build vibrant, sustainable rural communities and contribute to the prosperity of regional Australia.

ANZ Seeds of Renewal

Helping to build vibrant and sustainable rural communities

ANZ Seeds of Renewal is a grants program designed to help build vibrant, sustainable rural communities and ensure the ongoing prosperity of regional Australia. Since 2003, the program has provided more than $5 million to support more than 800 community groups. The program provides grants of up to $15,000 or technology equipment, to community organisations to help them convert ideas and ambition into reality.

Who can apply?

We invite applications from not-for-profit, community based organisations (with an ABN or Incorporation Certificate), including social enterprises, who will deliver projects with a demonstrable medium to long term benefit to a regional community of 15,000 people or less. In 2020, applications were encouraged from communities impacted by the 2019-2020 bushfires.

How do I apply?

Grants are administered by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) and applications are accepted on an annual basis. Applications for the 2022 Program closes at 5pm AEST Wednesday 3rd August 2022. 

To apply for a grant, visit the FRRR website to access the guidelines and application form.
