Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry has invited local community groups and organisations in Capricornia to submit an expression of interest for funding from Round 3 of the Stronger Communities Program.
“When running a community program every bit helps and these grants are a great way to access funds to upgrade facilities,” Ms Landry said.
“The electorate of Capricornia will receive a total of $150,000, giving our community groups and organisations a much needed boost.”
Through the program, the Federal Government provides grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 to eligible not-for-profit organisations for small capital projects. All applications need to commit to at least matching the funding or in-kind contributions.
“An independent Capricornia advisory committee will examine and prioritise the projects to ensure the funding delivers the best possible outcome for our local communities,” she said.
“The first step is to complete and return the expression of interest form, so to make it easier we’ve loaded the form to my website at https://www.michellelandry.com.au/funding-opportunities.
“I wish all groups the best of luck and, as always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact my office.”
Expressions of interest must be received by the electoral office by 5pm August 25th, 2017 and can be emailed to: Michelle.Landry.MP@aph.gov.au
