Stronger Communities Programme

Expressions of interest now open.

The Indi Stronger Communities Programme is now open for expressions of interest from incorporated, not-for-profit organisations, local government and trustees of community assets.

A total of $150,000 funding is available for grants from $2,500 to $20,000 for small capital projects that contribute to community vibrancy, sustainability and community participation in Indi.

This grant funding could go towards planning, alterations or extensions to your community group premises, purchasing ICT equipment, landscaping a garden, building a trail, buying sporting equipment or many other worthwhile projects that will provide benefits to your community.

Round 7 funding is designed to support Australia’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Up to 100 per cent of project costs will be available for eligible projects, except for local government where funding will be available for 50 per cent of the project cost.

Please carefully read the information and guidelines to ensure your organisation and project meet the eligibility criteria.

To apply, please complete an Expression of Interest:

Please return the completed form no later than Wednesday 1 December 2021 to:

Discover grants

Thousands of grant opportunities are available to businesses, community organisations and not-for-profit groups and individuals across Indi.

Knowing where to start and what to look for is the key. I’ve worked with successful grant recipients in my North East Victorian communities and grant experts to develop a range of How-to guides and video resources to step you through the process.

I’ve also developed Indi Funding Finder, one comprehensive on-line portal that gives you free access to the widest range of current grants. Used together, these tools are designed to help you or your organisation find the right grant and make a thorough application.

Grant resources

Here you’ll find a series of six handy ‘how-to’ guides and corresponding videos to help you or your organisation find and apply for grants.
