Round 7 of the Stronger Communities Programme is providing local governing bodies and community groups funding for projects of up to $20,000.

Announcing the successful grant recipients, Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry said more funding for Capricornia would deliver the infrastructure and equipment our communities need to be successful and grow.

“This funding of between $2,500 and $20,000 to community groups will allow them to spend more on their essential activities,” Ms Landry said.

“This type of investment brings people together by strengthening social connections, building community participation and delivering a brighter and more vibrant future for communities.

“The Federal Coalition Government is continuing to back Capricornia, providing opportunities to get ahead and prosper into the future.”

Through the Stronger Communities Programme, the Government has provided more than $135 million for projects for community-building and job-creating projects across Australia.
