Stronger Communities Program Round 5- NOW OPEN!

Letter from Luke Howard MP | Federal Member for Petrie | Monday 5th August 2019

Up to $20,000 is on offer for a selected group of Petrie Electorate Organisations and community groups, but you have to get in quick.

The Stronger Communities Programme supports the Australian Government’s commitment to deliver social benefits across Australia by funding small capital projects in each of the 151 federal electorates, including Petrie. The program’s intended outcomes are to improve local community participation and contribute to vibrant and viable communities.

In the previous stronger communities programme rounds successful applicants have included Clontarf Beach State School who received $20,000 for an outdoor area upgrade for the students, Deception Bay PCYC who received $9,915 for air-conditioning and Aspley Rugby League Football Club who received $7,689 for a new scoreboard.

Each electorate has total funding of up to $150,000 that can be allocated to successful applications. A maximum of 20 projects will be funded in each electorate. The grant amount will be up to 50% of eligible project costs (grant percentage)

  • Minimum grant amount $2,500
  • Maximum grant amount $20,000

I have attached an Expression of Interest (EOI) form SCP_Form_64 and also the programs funding information for your attention. EOI forms are to be returned to my office by Friday 6th September. Successful EOI applicants will then be invited by my office to formally apply for the grant online.

For further information please visit- email me at or contact my office on 3284 8008.

Kind regards
