Stronger Communities Programme Round 7

Round 7 of the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme (SCP) has opened for expressions of interest.

The program delivers grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 for small capital works or capital expenditure being undertaken by incorporated not-for-profit organisations.

Eligible projects include upgrades or fit-outs of community centres, sporting facility upgrades, purchase of equipment for local State Emergency Service or Rural Fire Service, upgrade of park furniture, barbecues, bike paths, streetscapes and community gardens.

A total of $150,000 is being made available in the Riverina electorate for a maximum of 20 grants.

Grants do not need matching funds or in-kind contributions, except for grants to local government bodies.
