Expressions of interest are now open for the Stronger Communities Programme. Grants of $2,500 - $20,000 are available for small capital works projects and certain types of equipment which strengthen our community. For example, in the past grants have been given for new community playgrounds, new equipment for surf lifesaving clubs, and refurbished kitchens for community centres.
To be eligible, the project requires matched contributions, in cash or in kind on at least a dollar for dollar basis. If the funding is from an external body (i.e. a local council) a letter from that source endorsing the project must be provided.
Before applying please visit the Stronger Communities Programme website for all the eligibility details.
Expressions of Interest must be submitted by 5pm Friday 17 August 2017. To complete the Expression of Interest form follow this link - Expression of Interest Form
