The Morrison Government’s Volunteer Grants are now available for local community groups and organisations in Longman.
Under the 2019-20 Volunteer Grants program, 28 organisations in Longman will receive $63,750 in funding to help them buy equipment and cover costs, such as those for transport or training.
Federal Member for Longman Terry Young MP said volunteers are a vital part of the backbone of our community, with many vulnerable people in our society relying on their support.
“This funding will provide a much-needed boost for many organisations working tirelessly to provide critical services to those who need it most in Longman.
“Longman consists of so many wonderful volunteers and organisations who continually sacrifice to help others and strengthen our community resilience.
“This funding delivers on the Morrison Government’s commitment to support Australians, particularly marginalised and vulnerable people, through what are increasingly challenging times,” Mr Young said.
