STRONGER COMMUNITIES PROGRAM OPEN FOR ROUND THREE

Member for Isaacs Mark Dreyfus has invited local community and sporting groups to apply for a grant through Round Three of the Stronger Communities Program.

The program, which offers grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 for small capital works, is open to sporting, community and not-for-profit groups with an Australian Business Number, on a matched funding basis.

“This grants program is a great opportunity for local community and sporting groups to apply for federal funding to build or purchase an item that improves the capacity of our community,” Mr Dreyfus said.

The first two rounds of this program delivered some fantastic projects for the Greater Dandenong community, including $9,986 for the Xinjian Chinese Association of Australia to purchase iPads and cooking utensils for the use of their members in Keysborough and $5,530 for the Dandenong and District Netball Association to equip a ‘dream room’ at the Ella Athorn Pavilion in Dandenong with audio visual equipment including a television, a projector, chairs, tables and a laptop.

Interested community groups should contact the office of Mark Dreyfus on 9580 4651 for more information or make an expression of interest at: www.markdreyfus.com
