What is the Gellibrand SCP?
The 2019 Gellibrand Stronger Communities Programme offers grants of between $2,500 and $20,000 to community organisations and local governments for small capital projects that improve community participation and contribute to the vibrancy of our community in Melbourne’s West. To be eligible for a SCP grant, applicants are required to match SCP grants in cash or in-kind on at least a dollar for dollar basis.
Up to $150,000 will be allocated to projects within Gellibrand on the advice of a community consultation committee who will review all applications. Successful applications are then submitted to the Government for review and final sign off.
Examples of successful applications in previous rounds of the SCP in Gellibrand include:

Raising matching funds can be a challenge for any organisation, but my office is here to help you and to support you in meeting this program requirement (for example past applicants have successfully used crowdfunding campaigns to raise in-kind contributions for this program).
What is the process?
After organisations have made an application, all applications will be considered by the Gellibrand Stronger Communities Selection Committee.
Organisations will be informed of the outcome by mid-September.
Successful applicants will then be invited to apply for final funding approval.
