 Are you a not for profit organisations? Do you have a project in mind that you need financial assistance to complete? Could you use up to $20,000?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then you could be eligible for a Stronger Communities Grant.

Applications are now open and Fowler MP, Chris Hayes, is asking for interested organisations to submit an expression of interest.

Funding of between $2,500 - $20,000 is available to not for profit organisations, with Federal funding not exceeding 50% of the total project cost.

Expressions of interest close on 8 August 2017 and applications close at 5.00pm on 28 September 2017.

A Consultative Committee of community representatives has been set up and will consider all proposals and make recommendations.

"This is an excellent opportunity for community groups to obtain the financial help they need to complete their nominated project."

"If you feel you are eligible for a grant, I would urge you submit an expression of interest, it could be just the helping hand you need," Chris Hayes said.
