I am calling on local community organisations to come forward with ideas on how to improve our area through the Stronger Communities Program.
Grant applications can be made from $5,000 up to $20,000 and must be matched in money terms or in kind by the organisation.
Successful grants will be awarded for equipment and/or infrastructure which will benefit the community.
Round 1 is a two stage process. Firstly, all applications will be reviewed by an independent body of local peers, and then passed onto the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development for final approval.
Expressions of interest for these grants can be made by emailing me at Michelle.Rowland.MP@aph.gov.au or by mail to PO Box 868, Seven Hills 1730 by 25 September 2015 in order to meet the application timeframe.
Any supporting documentation would be much appreciated including sketches, plans and pricing lists.
