Federal Member for Moore, Ian Goodenough MP has announced that the Government has committed $150,000 to fund up to 20 local community infrastructure projects across the electorate of Moore.
Grants of $2,500 to $20,000 are available for eligible projects as part of the $22.65 million investment nationwide under Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme.
“These investments in vital local infrastructure for the people of Moore are the sort of projects that bring our communities together, strengthen social connections, build community participation and create vibrant and viable communities into the future,” Mr Goodenough said.
The last round of Stronger Communities grants contributed to projects such as resurfacing the courts at Halidon and Duncraig Primary Schools, a mobile dug out at Kingsely Football Club as well as upgrades to facilities at a number of local parks.
“This funding benefits local groups including; community and sporting organisations, P&C associations and local churches, making this program a win for the entire community.”
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the Stronger Communities Programme was aimed at funding projects that deliver social benefits as part of the Government’s continuing commitment to strengthen communities across Australia.
“Our local communities are the heart of this great country and this investment in local projects under the Stronger Communities Programme is about invigorating these communities and ensuring their continued success,” Mr McCormack said.
Expressions of Interest are open until Friday, 6th September 2019, after which the Moore Community Consultation Committee will identify priority projects, and Ian Goodenough MP will invite selected applicants to complete an online application form, to be lodged with Minister McCormack’s office for final assessment.
