Following the success of my Local Heroes Grants in 2016, I am pleased to announce these awards will be continuing in 2017. The awards are designed to provide a bit of a helping hand to community groups for equipment or expenses, or individuals wishing to pursue sporting or academic ventures. I will offer four $250 grants every two months to groups or individuals from across the Glass House electorate so if you would like to apply, please complete the following nomination form.
Closing dates for 2017 are as follows:
Round 1 – Monday 13 February
Round 2 – Monday 10 April
Round 3 – Monday 12 June
Round 4 – Monday 14 August
Round 5 – Monday 9 October
Round 6 – Monday 11 December
If you are successful in obtaining a grant, Andrew will be personally presenting you with a certificate to recognise your achievements. He will also ask that you participate in a media release and a video clip that will be shared on social media.
