Stronger Communities Programme

If your organisation has a project that needs doing, but your budget won't allow it, then apply for a Stronger Communities Programme grant.

How much?   The grant can pay up to $20,000, and is designed to contribute up to 50% of a project cost.

Who can apply?   Eligible organisations: Not-for-profits, clubs, local government agencies or bodies, trustees on behalf of a property trust with responsibility for community assets. The organisation must have a current ABN, or ACNC.

Criteria?   The project must improve local community participation, and contribute to the promotion of vibrant and viable communities.

How to apply?   Email my office on john.alexander.mp@aph.gov.au with the following information: project details, estimated cost (no need for a quote at this stage), and community benefit.

Assessment process?   I have assembled a consultation panel of community champions who will assess the applications and provide a short list. We will notify the shortlisted projects and invite them to make a formal application for the grant via the governments official grant application processes.

Deadline?   11 August 2017
