Telstra’s Connected Communities Grant Program

Telstra’s Connected Communities Grant Program

Telstra has announced the Connected Communities Grant Program, supporting Australia’s remote, rural, and regional communities with $600,000 to foster inclusion and resilience over the next three years.
 
In partnership with the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal, grants of up to $10,000 are available to not-for-profits to help them build resilient, sustainable, and liveable communities.  If you know of a community group or not-for-profit organisation that could use a hand – the Connected Communities Grant Program might be for them!  
 
The program has three themes: 

Resilient communities that are well prepared and socially connected, with the ability to renew and recover together when disaster strikes; 
Sustainable communities that are diverse and inclusive, through planning for the health, wellbeing and prosperity of their people and planet;
Liveable communities that have digital capability, helping to equip people with the skills to live, learn and work in a digital society.  

 
Funds will be available for new or existing not-for-profit programs to help them scale their impact to help more Australians in rural and regional areas become better connected.  
 
Applications for the 2023 Telstra Connected Communities grant round will open at 9am on Wednesday 1st of March 2023 and will close at 5pm on Thursday 30th of March 2023. This first round will make $200,000 available for applications of up to $10,000 each. Successful grants will be announced in June 2023 and successful applicants will have 12 months to complete funded projects.
