They include providing a piano for the local choir and wider community in Kempsey (NSW), installing children’s play equipment in Texas (Qld), and undertaking building repairs at Milang Museum in SA.

Applications for the next round of the Tackling Tough Times Together program are currently open, and drought-affected areas across remote, rural and regional Australia are being encouraged to apply

The program is administered under the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal and is intended to enhance community wellbeing and strengthen local economies.
