Ideas To Improve Our Community.... Ed Husic MP

If you're a local group who has an idea to improve our community, it's not too late to send your Expression of Interest for the Stronger Communities Programme.

You may wish to submit your EOI by 5pm tomorrow, Friday 24 August. Further information can be found below. 

I look forward to receiving your applications. 


Our local area will receive $150,000 from the Federal 
Government for small capital works projects that improve
community participation and make our community a better 
place to live.

I’m calling on local community groups to contact me with
ideas and suggestions on how the funding should be used.
Grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 will be awarded to 
successful not-for-profit and local government organisations.  
A local committee made up of representatives from local 
sporting clubs and cultural groups will consider all proposals 
and make recommendations to the Department of 
Infrastructure and Regional Development.

The Stronger Communities Programme requires matched 
contributions in cash or in kind on at least a dollar for dollar 

Click here to download the Expression of Interest form and 
return to my office by 5pm, Friday 24 August 2018.
For further information including guidelines please see the 
Department's website here or contact my office on 
9625 4344.

Does it really matter? I doubt we will see any of that money go towards anything ideas or suggestions we have that could benefit our community. As you are only interested in what could make profit. If you'd like to prove me wrong do not hesitate to email me
