Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan is reminding community organisations across Wannon to apply for funding under Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme.

“The Stronger Communities Programme is a fantastic opportunity for community organisations to gain funding for small capital projects.  Projects can range from upgrading the local community hall or sporting facility, building new bike paths, or providing essential equipment for the local State Emergency Service,” said Mr Tehan.

The Morrison Government has committed $150,000 to fund up to 20 local community infrastructure projects across Wannon.

Grants range from $2,500 to $20,000 and will support eligible community projects that

  • bring our communities together
  • strengthen social connections
  • build community participation and
  • create vibrant and viable communities into the future

If your community organisation hasn’t applied, I encourage you to act now.

Community organisations are the heart of Wannon, and this investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about invigorating Wannon communities and ensuring their continued success.

Nominations close at 5pm, Friday 6 September.
