Stronger Community Grants

Bennelong boasts great local community organisations with big plans, big hearts, but limited funds. So I’m doing something about this.

Through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme $150,000 is available to Bennelong community groups in infrastructure grant funding.

This federal funding will improve local participation and cohesion, and contribute to develop an even more vibrant Bennelong community.

These grants are available to local organisations to fund tangible new infrastructure projects within Bennelong to deliver positive social benefits.

Funding amounts between $5,000 and $20,000 are available and must be matched (either dollar for dollar or in-kind) by the applicant or another source.

Applications close on 20th October.

 I have formed an independent panel of senior respected community representatives (including our very own NDT) to assess all applications. 

For more information email me at with a rough outline of your proposal or call me on 9869 4288 if you have any questions.

The application process has just opened, so get thinking!
