Stronger Communities Grants Announcement

By Terri Butler MP

11 March 2021

Terri Butler MP has announced the list of nominees for the current round of Stronger Communities grants.

The Stronger Communities Programme provides each Federal electorate with $150,000 to fund small capital projects.

These projects aim to improve local community participation and contribute to vibrant viable communities.

As the Federal MP, Ms Butler's role was to identify potential projects and invite applications.

To identify projects, Ms Butler conducted an open expressions of interest process. More than eighty organisations nominated projects.

Ms Butler then published information about each of the proposed projects and sought community feedback. She further formed a consultative committee to review the grants proposals.

"In deciding on these nominees I have had regard to the grants criteria, community expressions of support, effort, geographic spread, and variety in relation to types of projects," Ms Butler said.

"All of the expressions of interest I received were meritorious, and all of them were for really useful, community-building projects.

"I congratulate every organisation that submitted an EoI for the quality of their ideas, and for the work they do every day to make our communities even better places to work, raise families, enjoy culture, and live," she said.

The organisations to be nominated for a grant are:

Sisters Inside
