Stronger Communities Programme

Each year, the Federal Government runs the Stronger Communities Programme.

Up to $150,000 of funding is available in Cowan for small capital projects which improve community participation and contribute to the vibrancy and viability of our northern suburbs.

Organisations can receive a Commonwealth grant of between $2,500 and $20,000 for a project. This funding must be matched by the organisation from its own funds or from other sources – in other words, the grant can contribute up to 50% of the total project cost.

Take a look at the Programme’s previous fact sheet and guidelines to see if your organisation might be eligible for future rounds! Further information about the Programme is also available at
