We support people and communities, particularly those experiencing disadvantage and exclusion in rural Australia. We do this through our annual small grants and longer term programs where we partner with local community organisations to build stronger communities.

OUR Annual Small GRANTS
Building stronger communities
Each year Highways and Byways – A Community of Service runs a program offering grants of up to $3,000 to address disadvantage and inequality within small towns and communities, especially in rural, regional and remote areas of Australia. We always receive many more applications than we can fund.
In 2022, our small grants program will support projects that advance the theme of ‘Healing the Land – Healing Ourselves – Together’.
This will focus on addressing social, economic and environmental distress through locally led, practical land health and environmental restoration projects, with an emphasis holistic practices, leadership and personal development and the intergenerational sharing of knowledge and skills.
