Up to $150,000 of Commonwealth funding is available in Cowan under Round 7 of the Stronger Communities Programme! This funding is for small capital projects which improve community participation, and contribute to the vibrancy and viability of our northern suburbs.
If nominated, eligible organisations can receive a grant of between $2,500 and $20,000 for a project. With the exception of local government bodies (which must match Stronger Communities funding with funding from other sources), applicants can fund up to 100% of the total project cost from a Stronger Communities grant.
