Communities in the Flinders electorate will benefit from a significant boost in funding announced in the 2015 Budget.
The Government’s new Stronger Communities Program will provide $45 million over two years to fund small capital projects.
In my electorate of Flinders, we will receive funding of $150,000 per year over two years to support projects that deliver social benefits.
I will be consulting closely with eligible organisations to identify high priority projects and welcome community groups to approach me with ideas.
Grants of between $1,000 and $20,000 will be made available to reputable, not-for-profit organisations for local projects.
These grants will fund projects that will yield significant social benefits to a variety of groups in the community.
I look forward to seeing new local projects taking shape as a result of this terrific initiative.
I encourage local groups to contact my office on 5979 3188 to express their interest in the program.
