APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN!

The Morrison Government is working to keep our economy strong, and to strengthen local communities.

Community groups contribute so much to our local community, making them better places to live, work and raise a family.

Our local communities are the heart of this great country and this investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about invigorating these communities and ensuring their continued success.

I’d like to invite your organisation to apply for funding through the Stronger Communities Programme. Grants can range from $2,500 to $20,000.
