Round 7 of the Stronger Communities Programme is now open

The Stronger Communities Programme is designed to deliver social benefits to Dickson and other electorates across Australia.

Previous rounds were very successful with a wide variety of projects completed. Here in Dickson, we were able to assist many organisations to undertake equipment and facilities upgrades.

Many of these projects would not have been possible without these grants and I am looking forward to working with local organisations to once again deliver improvements for our community.

The grant amount for small capital projects is up to 100% of eligible project costs, except for local governing bodies, where grant funding will be up to 50% of eligible projects costs.

Grant requests must be between $2500 and $20,000.

The process for making an application is as follows:

  1. Complete and return the Expression of Interest form before 5pm, Monday, 29 November 2021.
  2. Successful organisations will be invited to submit a formal online application 
  3. Formal applications must be submitted before 19 January 2022.

A local Committee has been established to review each Expression of Interest application. More information regarding the Programme can be found by reviewing the guidelines or clicking here.

For any further information please contact my office via email and a Committee Representative will be in touch with you directly.
