Schools in Bonner have one week left to apply for funding through the Coalition Government’s Local School Community Fund to support small-scale projects.
Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP said schools could apply for grants of up to $20,000 for school projects that benefit their students’ learning experience.
“Projects could be anything from upgrading playground and sporting equipment, to library resources, new computers and mental health and counselling services,” Mr Vasta said.
“My electorate has been allocated $200,000 in grant funding for projects and I urge all schools across Bonner to submit an application for funding though the Local School Community Fund.
“I want to see applications from every school across Bonner seeking funding for projects that will help their students and the local school community.”
The Local Schools Community Fund is open to eligible state, Catholic and Independent schools.
Schools may submit one application for up to $20,000 funding for each of their campuses.
Applications close at 5pm AEST on September 30, 2019 and projects must be completed by the end of 2020.
Schools can apply for the Coalition Government program through SchoolsHUB – https://schools.education.gov.au/.
