Stronger Communities Programme Round 7


The Liberal and Nationals Government is providing a further $150,000 in funding for small-scale upgrades and new equipment that community groups in Capricornia need and deserve.

“Our Government continues to deliver for Capricornia” Ms Landry said.

“This latest funding injection will support up to 20 projects across our communities, supporting jobs and delivering an economic boost to drive our recovery on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic.

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