Apply for a grant to strengthen your community

‘Expressions of Interest’ are now open for the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Program with up to $150,000 in funding available for Cowper organisations.

Nationals Member for Cowper Luke Hartsuyker said there was only one month to get Expressions of Interest into his office.

“Now is your chance to grow and expand your services, update your equipment or renovate your premises by way of the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Program,” Mr Hartsuyker said.

In order for the project to be eligible, it must deliver social benefits to the community and the organisation would need to cover at least 50 per cent of the project’s total cost.

Grants are available from a minimum amount of $2,500 to a maximum of $20,000.

To apply, contact Mr Hartsuyker’s office via email and the applicable documentation will be supplied in a return email.

Should the organisation return the completed form before 11th August, they could be awarded a share of $150,000 of Federal Government funding pending a formal selection process.
