The Stronger Communities Program – Round 8 Expressions of Interest (EOI) are now open.

The program aims to encourage and support participation in local projects, improve local community participation and contribute to vibrant and viable communities.

Grants of between $2,500 to $20,000 are available to help fund small capital projects that will benefit our local Bonner community.

The grant amount for small capital projects is up to 100% of eligible project costs, except for local governing bodies where grant funding will be up to 50% of eligible projects costs.

I want to encourage all local eligible community groups to submit EOIs for this grant.

The EOIs will be assessed by an independent community panel, and successful submissions will be invited to submit an application.

Please complete and email this EOI form by 5pm Friday the 24th of March 2023 to

For more information or for any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to contact my office on 3893 3488.

Guidelines for the application process can be found here.
