Up to $150,000 of funding will be available across the electorate of Franklin for small capital projects which improve local community participation and contribute to vibrant and viable communities.

Grants between $2,500 and $20,000 are available to eligible entities such as local government, incorporated not-for-profit organisations, or an incorporated trustee on behalf of a trust with responsibility for a community asset or trust.

Any approved grant amount can be up to 50% of the eligible project costs. An eligible entity can fund its share of the project cost from any source, either in case or in-kind.

Grant funding is available to a maximum of 20 projects in Franklin. If you believe your organisation may be interested in applying, complete our Expression of Interest form by 13th September.

If you require any further information about the Programme, the Expression of Interest process, or have any other enquiry please get in touch with Julie Collins’s office on 6244 1222 or email Julie.Collins.MP@aph.gov.au.
