The Stronger Communities Programme provides grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 for small capital projects that improve community participation and contribute to vibrant and viable communities.
There is a total of $150,000 available to Lingiari to fund a maximum of 20 projects. Local government agencies, Incorporated not-for-profits and Trustees acting on behalf of a property trust that are responsible for a community asset are eligible to apply.
The project must be located in the Lingiari electorate and applicants must be able to demonstrate matched funding for the project, in cash or in-kind.
