November 2021 Grants Update


Feature Grant – Stronger Communities Programme

The Stronger Communities Programme from the Australian Government provides each Federal electorate with $150,000 to fund small capital projects. Federal Members of Parliament (MPs) identify potential projects and invite community-based applications from their electorate, usually to the maximum value of $20,000.  The project should focus on capital purchases or improvements that support community participation and contribute to vibrant viable communities.

Each Federal electorate has its own process and closing date for Expressions of Interest, so contact your Federal MP for more information.
