Local Projects Deliver Stronger Communities

A Funding programme which provides as much as $20,000 for non-profit community groups to undertake capital projects is up and running again, and Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government John McVeigh is calling for applications.

Stronger Communities
“We are now embarking on Round 4 of the Stronger Communities Programme. Each electorate will receive $150,000 to allocate towards successful projects, with a maximum of 20 projects to be funded per electorate.”

Mr MCveigh says the additional investment for a fourth round of SCP would ensure that local decision making continues to play a decisive role in funding community building projects.

“The program is aimed at funding projects that deliver social benefits and form part of the Coalition Government’s continuing commitment to strengthen communities across Australia.”

“This funding support is for all sorts of vital projects that bring our communities together, strengthen our social connections, build community participation and create vibrant and viable communities into the future.”

“Grants will be available between $2,500 and $20,000 for successful applications and I now invite organisations within the community to put forward their attractive, high-quality, projects for assessment.”

Applications open today, Monday 6 August 2018, and expressions of interest are sought by September 1.
