The Stronger Communities Programme funds small capital projects which deliver social
benefits by supporting community participation and contributing to the vibrancy and viability
Local Governments and incorporated not-for-profit organisations are eligible to apply for
grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 to fund capital projects. Applicants will be required to
demonstrate matched funding for the project, in cash or in-kind.
Applicants are required to submit an Expression of Interest form by Monday 27 August which will
then be reviewed by the Bendigo Electorate Consultative Committee.
