Published: 27 Aug 2015
Today the Outback Communities Authority (OCA) announced the opening of the First round of Project Grants for 2015-16. The OCA will also continue to encourage requests to fund a wide range of projects aimed at improving the quality of life for the outback region as a whole. The OCA, is encouraging outback communities to come up with interesting ideas that reflect their Community’s unique identity. There is still an opportunity for other projects that provide benefit to outback residents and their wider communities to be considered.
The OCA is very pleased to be able to continue this funding program having supported a diverse range of projects in 2014-15, such as sponsorships for the Queen of the Desert festival, annual gymkhana and tennis tournaments, also community oval redevelopment and a tennis court upgrade. The grants are administered by the OCA and are aimed at supporting community projects that improve the quality of life for outback residents. The Outback Grants Program provides one-off funding to a limit of $10,000 with most grants allocated in smaller project amounts of $5,000 or less. The grants are available to incorporated bodies with an Australian Business Number operating within the OCA’s jurisdiction. Calls for the first round of grants from the program close Friday 4 September 2015 at 5pm. View guidelines and application forms here, or call the OCA on 1800 640 542.
