With grant applications closing soon under the Local Schools Community Fund, Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton is urging schools in his electorate to apply.
Mr Coulton said schools can apply for funding through SchoolsHUB, with grants available of between $1,000 and $20,000.
“Now is the time to throw your hat in the ring for a grant under the Coalition Government’s Local Schools Community Fund,” Mr Coulton said.
“Many schools in my electorate have already applied – which is fantastic – but I’d like to see more.
“I’m sure every school has a list of dream projects. These projects can be anything that benefits the school community, such as new library resources, solar panels, play equipment, composting, and more.
“I strongly urge all schools in my electorate to think about the best way this funding can help their students, and to submit an application today.”
Applications to the Local Schools Community Fund are open to eligible government, Catholic and independent schools until 5.00pm AEST, 30 September 2019.
Each proposed project will be independently evaluated by a committee appointed by the Member for Parkes. Up to $200,000 will be allocated for projects at local schools in the Parkes electorate.
Schools can apply through SchoolsHUB – https://schools.education.gov.au
