Further funding available for local communities

Applications are now open for round 8 of the Stronger Communities Programme.

Delivering social benefits and boosting local community participation continues to be the focus of the Stronger Communities Program.

With $22.7 million available under round 8, we are committed to continuing to support community-shaping projects across the country.

Grants between $2,500 and $20,000 are available for not-for-profit community organisations and local governments to deliver small capital projects, including small-scale infrastructure upgrades, fit-outs and equipment purchases.

Applications are now open. All successful grantees will be notified as soon as their grant is approved.
