Have your say on local community grants.

As the local MP, Terri is nominating up to twenty local projects to share in $150,000 in community grants.

These grants support small capital proposals that encourage and support participation in local projects, improve local community participation and contribute to vibrant and viable communities.

With only twenty grants up for grabs, Terri has some tough decisions ahead. 

So she is asking for community feedback to help her decide which projects to nominate.

Giving feedback is simple. Just use the survey at the bottom of this page. 

You can learn about each of the proposed projects by following the links on this page, or the individual surveys at the bottom of each proposal.

Feedback is requested by 5 pm Thursday 16 December 2021. 

Clients Outdoor Space and laundry facility upgrade

By Murri Watch Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporation

The Murri Watch Diversionary Centre predominantly services the vulnerable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-indigenous community members of the Griffith Electorate and Brisbane City. By providing an outdoor “chill out” space for clients, it encourages them to get off the streets and into a place of safety such as Murri Watch. When clients access our culturally sensitive service, they are not only provided with a safe space, bed, meal, shower and laundry facilities, but also crisis case management services. Our Case Management Team strives to accurately determine the complex needs of the clients and provide referrals and transport to appropriate agencies if required.
