Expressions of interest (EOI) are now open for the chance to secure up to $20,000 for your community organisation.

I encourage you to thoroughly read the eligibility requirements to see if you are eligible.

About the program

The Stronger Communities Programme will provide up to $150,000 to each federal electorate for eligible small capital projects that encourage and support participation in local projects, improve local community participation and contribute to vibrant and viable communities. A maximum of 20 projects will be funded in each electorate.

Eligible applicants can apply for a grant between $2,500 and $20,000 to fund their project which will improve local community participation and contribute to more vibrant and inclusive communities.

What next?

Following the successful submission of your expression of interest application, the community consultation committee will identify priority projects and invite selected applicants to complete an online application form that will be lodged with the Department for final assessment.
