Investing in Regional Victoria

The Jack Brockhoff Foundation is one of four Victorian philanthropic foundations that have joined forces in a unique $5 million partnership with the Foundation for Rural Regional Renewal (FRRR) which will strengthen the capacity and resilience of communities over the next five years.

Three Victorian communities will be named later this year after a detailed process involving needs analysis, mapping of key issues, disruptions and the funding landscape, and exploration of community readiness for the investment.

The partnership also includes the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust, The Ross Trust, and William Buckland Foundation. FRRR will deliver the program, following the success of its similar NSW, Investing in Rural Communities Futures program (IRCF).
