Stronger Community Grants


Community groups like yours contribute so much to Longman and make our region such a great place to live, work and raise a family.
As your Federal Member, I am always working hard to strengthen our local community, so I am pleased to announce I am now inviting Expressions of Interest for Round 8 of the Stronger Communities Programme for 2023.

For Round 8 of the program, grants from $2,500 to $20,000 will be available for up to 20 incorporated community organisations for eligible small capital projects that encourage and support participation in local projects, improve local community participation and contribute to our vibrant and viable community.

I’d like to invite your organisation to review the eligibility guidelines and submit your Expression of Interest (EOI) to my office NOW! You can download the Expression of Interest Form here .

This is the first stage of the grants process so please complete your EOI form and return to my office by 5pm Thursday 9th March 2023. Applications received after this date will not be considered due to strict timeframes.

Details on eligibility are available here.
