The Stronger Communities program offers grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 to community organisations and local governments for small capital projects that improve local community participation and contribute to our vibrant local communities.

Up to $150,000 will be allocated to projects in the Corangamite electorate. To be eligible for a Stronger Communities grant, applicants are required to contribute at least 50 per cent towards project costs. The applicant must also be based in the Corangamite electorate.

Please consider the grant opportunity guidelines and frequently asked questions before applying. Key eligibility criteria will apply.

All eligible organisations in the Corangamite electorate are welcome to send us an expression of interest (EOI). 

Expressions of Interest are open until Friday 13 September 2019.

Expressions of Interest will then be considered by the Corangamite Selection Committee. Around 20 September up to 20 nominated projects will then be emailed to complete the application process, by 10 October 2019.

Please note that receiving an invitation to apply for funding following the close of expressions of interest does not guarantee that your funding application will be successful.

Please contact the electorate office if you have any questions about this program.
