Submissions welcome for Stronger Communities Programme

Local Federal MP Andrew Hastie invites Canning residents to submit project proposals to receive up to $20,000 under Round 4 of the Stronger Communities Programme (SCP).

“The Stronger Communities Programme is a fantastic Federal Government initiative to fund small capital projects that foster community cohesion and create viable, vibrant communities across our region,”

“I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the most recent round of SCP funds being put to good use around our region. The Mandurah Mums’ Cottage garden; Port Bouvard Recreation and Sporting Club’s new furniture; Nidjalla Waangan Mia’s new medical transport vehicle; and Scouts WA’s refurbished training camp toilets are just some of the beneficiaries of the Stronger Communities Programme. These grants really do make a difference to our communities.”

Eligible applicants—including local government and incorporated not-for-profit organisations—can apply for a grant between $2,500 and $20,000 for their project, provided they can match their funding request with cash or in-kind donations.

“With $150,000 of funding to allocate under Round Four of this programme, I would encourage all interested parties to contact my office a soon as possible to request an Expression of Interest form. These are welcome until 5:00pm (AWST) September 10, after which they will be assessed by the Canning Community Advisory Committee for eligibility and merit."

"Submissions recommended to my office by the committee will then be invited to formally apply for the grant,”
