Letter: Enter a community project for funding

Local community groups, councils, and not for profits can put forward their expression of interest in the Stronger Communities Program.

A total $150,000 in funding has been allocated for the electorate of Mallee under the program, which has delivered great community projects across the regions in the past three rounds.

The Stronger Communities Programme is one of our most competitive funding schemes each year, and we see some outstanding project proposals put forward from sports club upgrades to council delivered projects.

Last year we were able to deliver bowls club upgrades, funding for a new vehicle for Sunassist Volunteer Helpers, netball court upgrades, Lions club funding and many other local community minded projects.

All eligible groups are encouraged to put forward their expression of interest with my office and the application process will begin from there.

Grants will be available between $2500 and $20,000 for successful applicants.

For more information, including eligibility criteria and application forms contact 1300 131 620. The deadline is Monday, September 10.

Member for Mallee
