Connected, Resilient and Futureproof Communities

The TFFF exists to support rural, regional, and remote communities in Queensland and the Northern Territory, who face particular challenges due to their geographic location. The TFFF values connectednessresilience and futureproofing efforts and supports organisations and endeavours which further embed these qualities in our communities. We focus on organisations and initiatives that are locally driven, grow leadership, encourage diversity, strengthen community, and involve collaboration between both private and public sector partners. We envisage a future where people in rural, regional and remote communities in Queensland and the Northern Territory are afforded a level of opportunity equal to their metropolitan counterparts.
