Maranoa MP seeking nominations for Stronger Communities Programme Round 6

January 7, 2021

How could your community benefit from $20,000?

Maranoa MP David Littleproud is seeking Expressions of Interest from community groups to receive a share of $150,000 under Round 6 of the Stronger Communities Programme.

“I’m a firm believer in bringing people together and improving community services across rural and regional areas in Maranoa because it has a positive flow-on effect on our quality of life,” Mr Littleproud said.

“That’s why I’m pleased to see $150,000 in Federal Government funding under the Stronger Communities Programme open up to Maranoa community group and councils.

“Up to 20 projects can be funded across Maranoa – ranging from $2500 to $20,000 – and I can’t wait to see what projects are put forward to help strengthen our rural communities.

“Our bush communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure we make the most of this round of funding.

“We’re looking to fund small capital projects which encourage community participation in local projects and contribute to our vibrant communities – that could be upgrading the local community hall, installing lights at the football field, building playgrounds at parks or providing essential equipment for the local SES.”

For this special round, grant funding will be up to 100 per cent of eligible project costs except for local governing bodies where grant funding will be up to 50 per cent of eligible project costs.

“If you have a project that you believe is eligible for funding under the Stronger Communities Programme – I want to hear about it.

“Click on the Stronger Communities tab on my website – www.davidlittleproud.com.au – to download and complete the Expression of Interest form and submit to my office before 18th February 2021.”

Completed forms should be emailed to David.Littleproud.MP@aph.gov.au. For more information you can contact Mr Littleproud’s office on 4661 2494, or visit www.business.gov.au/grants-and-programs/stronger-communities-programme  to view the programme’s guidelines.
