Could your community group do with $20,000 to make our community a better place?
“Under the Stronger Communities Grants Program, $150,000 will be available to local community groups for capital projects” said Graham Perrett MP, Member for Moreton.
Grants between $5000 and $20,000 are available under this program.
To be eligible, the projects require matched contributions, in cash or in kind on at least a dollar for dollar basis
“These grants are for capital projects and will improve participation and contribute to the vibrancy of our Southside community”, said Mr Perrett.
“I understand that many community groups may not have the cash on hand to be able to contribute and I’m happy to talk to groups about creative ways to fundraise for their project.
“This is a great opportunity for our community to come together and support worthwhile local infrastructure which delivers a social benefit,” Mr Perrett said.
A community advisory committee will review submitted projects.
Community groups wanting further information should contact Mr Perrett’s electorate office on 3344 2622.
