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 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
