I’m pleased to advise that Expressions of Interest for Round 8 of the Stronger Communities Programme is now open.
The grants programme is a fantastic initiative which helps local community organisations with funding for equipment and capital works.
Previous rounds in Dickson were very successful with a wide variety of projects completed. These grants were able to assist many organisations to invest in themselves to grow and support others.
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.
Eligible organisations are invited to apply for grants between $2,500 and $20,000. The maximum total cost of the project cannot exceed $50,000.
The program has a multi-stage application process as follows:
– Complete and return the Expression of Interest Form with supporting documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business, Monday 6 March 2023.
– Following a panel process, a number of organisations will then be invited to submit a formal application for the funding round through an online portal.
– Formal applications must be submitted before 5pm AEDT, 26 April 2023.
A consultation committee comprised of representatives from the local community has been established as the panel to review each Expression of Interest application.
Please note that ‘in-kind’ expenditure is not eligible expenditure for this round.
Further details on eligibility criteria can found in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines.
