Expressions of Interest for funding via #LoveGippsland Stronger Communities Program due by 24 March 2023
Expressions of Interest (EOIs) are now open for round eight of the #lovegippsland Stronger Communities Program.
Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester said $150,000 was available in Gippsland to upgrade local infrastructure and to improve community facilities and resources. "The Stronger Communities Program is a fantastic initiative to support local community groups and organisations in supporting our communities through local events, providing services, fundraising and more."

Match funding amounts
Mr Chester said, "The EOI period is now open and will close at 5pm on Friday March 24, 2023 for interested community organisations. Grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 are available for projects that enhance the group's work and the wider community."
"Eligible projects include the purchase of equipment, fit-outs or alterations to existing premises or community spaces, upgrades of sporting facilities, streetscapes, bike paths or community gardens. The total expenditure of the project cannot exceed more than $50,000 and local governing bodies and organisations that fall under them will be required to match funding amounts." Mr Chester said.
Submit your EOI
EOIs will then be assessed by the Community Consultation Committee for eligibility and successful applicants will be invited to complete a full submission. Before submitting an EOI community groups and organisations are encouraged to review the grant opportunity guidelines to confirm eligibility.
EOIs must be submitted via Mr Chester's website, to be considered. For more information including grant opportunity guidelines visit Stronger Communities Programme - Round 8 page.
