Flynn Community Organisations Share in Over $150k

Community organisations in the Flynn electorate will share in over $150,000 in funding for small-scale upgrades and new equipment that they need and deserve.

Round 8 of the Stronger Communities Programme is providing local governing bodies and community groups funding for projects of up to $20,000.

Announcing the successful grant recipients, Federal Member for Flynn, Colin Boyce said more funding for the Flynn electorate would deliver the infrastructure and equipment our communities need to be successful and grow.

“This funding of between $2,500 and $20,000 to community groups will allow them to spend more on their essential activities,” Mr Boyce said.

“This type of investment brings people together by strengthening social connections, building community participation, and delivering a brighter and more vibrant future for communities.

“Unfortunately, this program has been discontinued in Labor’s May 2023 Budget, with no further funding provided beyond the current Stronger Communities Programme Round 8.”
