Building stronger communities: Morrison Government delivers funding for Corangamite projects

I am delighted to announce that 14 Corangamite projects have so far received funding under Round 4 of the Morrison Government’s Stronger Communities Programme (SCP).

Under the SCP, grants are available between $2,500 and $20,000 for a maximum of 20 projects in the Corangamite electorate.

Round 4 recipients by region are as follows:


  • Ocean Grove & District Men’s Shed: $9,500 to help install a solar hot water system and solar panels on the roof to generate electricity for the shed.
  • Ocean Grove SLSC: $10,000 for furnishing and equipping the clubrooms (which complements the $1 million our government is already providing to help fund construction of a new club building).
  • Ocean Grove Collendina Cobras Junior Football Club: $10,000 to help upgrade the existing club facilities and to purchase new uniforms.
  • Lions Club of Ocean Grove Barwon Heads: $11,500 to help fund construction of a storage shed for the Lions Club BBQ trailer.

  • Anglesea SLSC: $10,000 to go towards clubhouse upgrades to provide a suitable location, in the event of a bushfire emergency, for the Anglesea community and emergency organisations.



  • Apollo Bay Scouts Group: $10,000 to help set up the new scout group in Apollo Bay which will aim to address social disadvantage with the town’s youth.
  • Kawarren Recreation Reserve: $10,000 to go towards constructing a replacement playground for children and young families in the region.


Our region has been very successful under previous rounds of the Stronger Communities Programme, funding a wide range of projects including the upgrade to the Ocean Grove Tennis Club pavilion, the Kennett River Wildlife Walk and the upgrade of the Barwon Heads Community Hall stage.
