The Federal Member for Aston, the Hon Alan Tudge MP, is encouraging community groups and Knox Council to apply for funding for projects in Knox as part of the National Stronger Regions Fund.
Round one of the National Stronger Regions Fund is now open, with local community projects eligible to receive between $20,000 and $10 million to cover up to 50 per cent of project costs.
The $1 billion National Stronger Regions Fund will target projects that provide economic development and small scale community infrastructure at the local level throughout Australia.
Mr Tudge said the fund could provide financial support for community projects across Knox.
“The fund allows groups in Knox to put forward their ideas for local projects they want to see built in Knox.
“All community groups and Knox Council should consider applying for funding for their projects,” said Mr Tudge.
The guidelines for the National Stronger Regions Fund outline the type of project proposals sought, how to lodge an application, how assessments will be conducted, and critical programme dates.
