Michael O’Brien MP is encouraging local residents and community groups to apply for the Leader Local Grants to help improve local areas and bring community projects to life.
Leader is providing $100,000 in micro grants of $1,000 per eligible idea to community groups within the newspaper’s distribution area that are intended to make important community projects come to life throughout the year.
“If any local residents or community groups within the Stonnington area believe they have an innovative idea that could make a positive contribution to our community I urge you to submit your idea, or ideas, for consideration for the Leader Local Grants,” Mr O’Brien said.
“Anything from new equipment and furniture, gardens, rubbish and graffiti removal to rebuilding facilities are all fantastic ideas that our community can benefit greatly from.”
Applications for the second cycle of funding are open from 1-19 October.
