Federal Government Small Grants Programme

Federal Government Small Grants Programme

Federal Member for New England, the Hon. Barnaby Joyce said the Stronger Communities Programme, announced in this year’s Budget, will deliver $150,000 per year for two years to fund small capital projects which deliver social benefits.

“This is an exciting opportunity for local communities to work with me to identify potential projects which will contribute to our community’s long term vibrancy and viability,” Mr Joyce said.

“I will be establishing a community consultation committee to identify projects which are a priority and to ensure this funding delivers the best possible outcomes for our community. Following community consultation, I will invite identified incorporated not-for-profit and local government organisations to apply for funding.

“Identified applicants can apply for funding of at least $5,000 and up to a maximum of $20,000 and must provide matching cash or in-kind funding on at least a dollar for dollar basis.

“I encourage potential applicants to contact my office on (02) 6761 3080 to discuss projects which meet the eligibility criteria,” Mr Joyce said.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to read the Stronger Communities Programme guidelines and the Frequently Asked Questions which are available on the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development’s website www.infrastructure.gov.au/SCP

Funding for Local Rugby League Clubs

Funding for Local Rugby League Clubs

Closes 12 August

The 2015 NSW Footy Facilities Fund is open for applications from local football clubs until 12 August, 2015. It is a joint initiative of the National Rugby League and the State Government and offers funding to improve local clubs' grounds and facilities.

Additionally, applications can be strengthened by addressing one or more of the following:

  • improving safety at sport and recreation facilities (e.g. providing safer playing field, access pathways for players, disability ramps)
  • increase the security at sport and recreation facilities (e.g. installation of fencing)
  • remove barriers to promote inclusion in Rugby League (e.g. upgrade of amenities to increase female participation, provision of disability access, upgrade of referee amenities)
  • develop environmentally sustainable sport and recreation facilities (e.g. installation of drainage, rainwater tanks, more efficient lighting)
  • building strong communities.

Less than 100 days to go till Sky Muster has lift off!

Less than 100 days to go till Sky Muster has lift off!

New NBN Satellite

Launch of our historic first specialist broadband satellite getting closer…

After more than five years of hard work and planning we are getting close to launching our historic Sky Muster (NBN-1A) satellite into orbit from French Guiana. It’s an extraordinarily exciting time for everyone on the nbn™ Satellite team and for the rural Australians who will benefit from the service.

Right now Sky Muster is about to come out of storage at its manufacturer SS Loral in California having already passed its testing procedures – and we will shortly begin preparations to ship it to French Guiana.
