Funds on offer for Tiny Towns

Deputy Leader of the Nationals and Member for Lowan Emma Kealy is urging small communities across western Victoria to apply for funds under the Tiny Towns program.

The grants range from $5000 to $50,000 and are aimed at infrastructure projects such as playgrounds, community hall and library upgrades, hiking trails and splash parks.

Community and non-profit groups and councils in towns with a population of up to 5000 people can apply.

Ms Kealy said tiny towns were the backbone of many regional areas.

“Tiny towns provide a crucial hub for many people living in the country, as well as an attractive destination for tourists.

“Through this program communities can apply for grants to help deliver local projects that benefit locals and help attract visitors.

“It would be great to see as many communities as possible across Lowan benefit from this funding,” she said.

Applications close 5pm Sunday 25 February 2024.
