Help is on the way for local community organisations and not-for-profits through a grant seeker workshop this month.

Local communities have been invited to attend the free virtual grant-seeker workshop on Wednesday, December 9.

The workshop will be run by The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR), from 10:00am to 12:00pm (ACDT), with the workshop highlighting FRRR grant programs, also providing grant-writing tips to help community groups become more confident in applying for any of FRRR's grant programs.

These list of programs include the Tackling Tough Times Together (TTTT) program, targeted at communities in drought, and the Strengthening Rural Communities (SRC) grant program, which entails a bushfire recovery stream of funding.

FRRR's grant programs aim to provide remote, rural and regional community organisations the opportunity to access funds for a broad range of initiatives, focusing on directly benefiting local communities.

FRRR has a range of grant programs, including TTTT and SRC, providing funding and working to support local not-for-profits, community groups and foundations in remote, rural and regional communities across Australia.

Recent South Australian communities to benefit from TTTT and SRC grants have included Allendale East, Lucky Bay, Mannum, Parachilna and Paringa, with the grants supporting a wide range of projects, working to "increase local tourism" and focusing on "supporting the economic renewal."

The grants have also aimed to assist in "enhancing" the "wellbeing and resilience" of community members.
