What is the Stronger Communities Grant program? 

The Lyons  Communities Program offers grants of between $5,000 and $20,000 to community organisations and local governments for small capital projects that improve community participation and contribute to the vibrancy of our community in Tasmania.

Up to $150,000 will be allocated to projects within the electorate of Lyons on the advice of a community consultation committee who will review all applications. Successful applications are then submitted to the Government for review and final sign off.
