Applications for the 2024 Telstra Connected Communities grant round are now open.


Grants of up to $10,000 are available for not-for-profits in remote, rural, and regional communities and are in partnership with the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal

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 close 5pm on Wednesday 27th of March 2024.

Successful grants will be announced in June 2024 and successful applicants will have 12 months to complete funded projects.
