FEDERAL Perth MP Tim Hammond is urging local groups to apply for grants under the Stronger Communities Program, with grants between $5,000 to $20,000 on offer for community groups, sports clubs and local governments.
He’s inviting interested groups to fill out an EOI via his website ahead of their full application to improve their chance of success.
“This will help to get the ball rolling on the application process as soon as possible and give groups every chance of presenting the best submission possible,” he says. “We have already seen great success with the Stronger Communities Programme in the federal Perth electorate with organisations including the Perth Soccer Club building two new female change rooms and the Bayswater Sea Scouts who now have the money to expanded their operation with more equipment and storage space.”
Mr Hammond said applicants must be able to match the grant dollar for dollar with cash or in kind contribution to be eligible.
“There are many ways an organisation can fundraise their share of the project and my office is more than happy to provide advice to organisations around the various fundraising options,” Mr Hammond said.
