Community groups can access Federal Government grants up to $20,000 for capital projects.
Expressions of Interest are now open for the next round of the #lovegippsland Stronger Communities Program (SCP).
Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester encouraged local groups to nominate their projects by completing an Expression of Interest form, which must be submitted by 5pm Monday July 31, 2017.
Grants are available between $2,500 and $20,000 for infrastructure projects which improve community participation and strengthen the fabric of our local communities. The SCP grants can only cover 50 percent of the total project cost; matching contributions can be in-kind or cash or funded through another government grant.
Mr Chester encouraged locals to contact his Traralgon office on 5174 1341 or download a #lovegippsland SCP Expression of Interest form : SCP2017.expressionofinterestform
