The Government has allocated $150,000 to our electorate of Fisher under the Stronger Communities Programme. Grants between $2,500 and $20,000 will be available for community groups to upgrade their facilities or buy new equipment. In the last two rounds of this Programme in Fisher we have won grants for many projects introducing new bathroom facilities for C&K Kindy in Mooloolaba, new lathes and an extension for Caloundra Woodworking Club, a Netball court sun cover for Maleny Rotary Club and an Archive Room for Peachester Historical Society. Grant funding will be up to 50 per cent of project costs so applicants will be required to provide matched cash or in-kind contributions toward their eligible project.
