Below are a list of successful grants in the 2019 round, for organisations in Macnamara, that I was proud to have assisted with their applications.

Congratulations to all of the organisations, their officers and members on receiving the grant, and also for your ongoing valued work.

For anyone who was not successful, or who missed out making an application in this round, do not despair, there will be another round of grants next year, and if you contact my office, we can work out what we can do to succeed next time. The same offer stands for organisations who are only now aware of the programs.

Please visit the Apply for Local Grants page for more information.
