Stronger Communities


What could your community group do with $20,000?

Up to $150,000 of funding will be available in Throsby for small capital projects which improve community participation and contribute to the vibrancy and viability of local communities.

Grants of between $5000 and $20,000 are available for capital projects, but to be eligible, the projects require matched contributions, in cash or in kind on at least a dollar for dollar basis.
