Since 2017, we have delivered funding grants in collaboration with our community and frontliners to develop solutions, build sustainable models and address concerns. Each year we offer a range of grants to local clubs, organisations and schools to provide opportunities for young people to find their passion and create positive change in our community. Over the last two years, over 200 children have connected, participated, and contributed through this funding.

*Please note: due to the current situation many clubs and schools are facing as a result of COVID-19, we are re-evaluating our current MP Funding grants to assist those most in need, as well provide ‘seed’ funding for response initiatives.

Community Connect

Funding of up to $1,000 is available to local clubs and organisations to assist young people experiencing hardship to connect to activities, mentors and fellowship. This funding can be utilised to cover membership fees, equipment, training, uniforms or the provision of fuel vouchers/transport tickets for participants.

  • Funding is available for up to ten young people/participants per club/organisation.
  • Participants can be nominated by the club/organisation or referred by an approved referral agency.
  • The completion of a participant application form for each young person is required.
  • To ensure we can assess the effectiveness of the program, our office will require the number of participants that wish to continue engaging in the following year.

Changemaker

‘Seed’ funding of up to $500 is available to schools within the Noosa Electorate with an innovative ‘outside the box’ project that seeks to create positive change within our community and beyond! Since it’s inception, we have assisted with projects from IT, to national youth tree planting, to business start ups to clean ups!
