Community and veteran service organisations, councils and sporting groups are encouraged to submit expressions of interest for Stronger Communities Programme (SCP) funding, Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O'Brien announced today.
 
"A share of up to $150,000 is available in Wide Bay through Round 5 of the SCP to support small capital projects that will benefit local communities," Mr O'Brien said.
 
"Eligible organisations, including councils and incorporated not-for-profit community service and sporting groups, can apply for grants of between $2,500 and $20,000, supported by matching cash or in-kind contributions from other sources for the project.
 
Mr O'Brien said the SCP has helped a wide range of local groups, and is a great opportunity for local community organisations to apply for funding to help improve their facilities and strengthen their communities.
 
"If your community group needs some extra help to get a project off the ground, I strongly encourage you to submit an expression of interest by Friday, August 30," he said.

The Expressions of Interest form can be found at www.llewobrien.com.au/community-support/one-stop-shop
 
Organisations should consult the SCP guidelines and the frequently asked questions on the website www.business.gov.au/assistance/stronger-communities-programme  to determine eligibility.
 
"I encourage organisations interested in bringing forward SCP project proposals to contact my electorate office on telephone 4121 2936, or the Sunshine Coast, or Wide Bay Burnett Regional Development Australia Committees through the website www.rda.gov.au," Mr O'Brien said.
 
Applications will be prioritised by a local Stronger Communities Programme committee and assessed against the SCP guidelines to ensure that project proposals offer value for money.
 
SCP project proposals should be submitted by email to Llew.OBrien.MP@aph.gov.au by Friday, August 30, 2019.
