More funding available for small community projects

You can now nominate projects for grants of up to $20,000 with expressions of interest open for round eight of the Stronger Communities Programme.

  1. Federal Member for Longman Terry Young said more funding for Longman would deliver the infrastructure and equipment our communities needed to be successful and grow.

“This latest funding injection will support up to 20 projects across our communities, supporting jobs and delivering an economic boost to drive our recovery on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mr Young said. “This type of investment brings people together by strengthening social connections, building community participation, and delivering a brighter and more vibrant future for communities.” Local community organisations who have benefited for this program include:

  • Beachmere Community Gardens – shade structures

  • Burpengary Pony Club – utility vehicle and fridges

  • Woodford Agricultural Association – PA systems and projectors

  1. “I strongly encourage interested organisations to contact my office regarding projects important to them and our community,” Mr Young said. “Grants from $2500 up to $20,000 are available to cover up to 100% of eligible project costs or up to 50% of eligible project costs for local governing bodies.”
