Mackellar Community Grants
A community panel recommends a number of community grants in Mackellar each year that are administered through Sophie's office. In 2023, 40 local groups were awarded more than $230,000 in funding via these grants.
“Volunteers and community groups make such a positive contribution. It is my pleasure to help support volunteers and community groups who generously support our community and make Mackellar such a caring and vibrant place to live and work.” Dr Sophie Scamps
The Federal Government's Volunteer Grant and the Stronger Communities Grant support the work of community groups.
- To support the work of volunteers
- Organisations must have minimum 40% volunteer personnel to be eligible.
Stronger Communities Grants
- Up to $50,000
- For equipment to help in delivering services to the community
All applications are considered on individual merit by an independent committee made up of volunteers with local knowledge of the Mackellar community and expertise in community needs.
Applications are via an expression of interest and details will be published here and in our newsletter when open. If you have signed up for our newsletter, you will automatically be contacted by the electorate office when the grant application process opens.
