The Commonwealth Government has announced a sixth round of funding for local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme.

Up to $150,000 of funding is available in the electorate of Corio for small capital projects which improve community participation and contribute to the vibrancy and viability of local communities.

Grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 will be available, but unlike previous rounds, unless you are a Local Governing Body, funding is available for up to 100 per cent of eligible project costs – meaning that your organisation does not need to contribute to the project costs.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in, I am keen to hear about any proposals that you might have for the funding.

Due to the very short time frames given by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, expressions of interest will close on Friday 19 February 2021. 

Please use one of the below Expression of Interest forms and forward your completed form to

Stronger Communities Programme: Expression of Interest Form (PDF) Stronger Communities Programme: Expression of Interest Form (WORD)

The Programme’s guidelines and information will assist in determining if your organisation’s project meets the eligibility criteria. Please take the time to read this document carefully before submitting your expression of interest.

If you have any queries about the Programme please contact my office on 5221 3033.

I wish you the very best in your application.
