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.

  • Whether an incorporated not-for-profit or local governing body
  • Project description (50 words or less)
  • Total project cost (Estimate only – a quote is not required at this stage)
