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.

Terri has received more than eighty Expressions of Interest for these grants. With only twenty grants up for grabs, she 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, or like, comment and share Terri's social media posts about these grants. 

You can learn about each Expressions of Interest by following the links on this page.
