Community groups in the Parkes electorate are encouraged to apply now for a share of $66,225 in funding to support the work of their volunteers.

Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said Expressions of Interest (EOI) in the Australian Government’s 2023-24 Volunteer Grants program are now open.

“We are lucky to have so many hard-working volunteers in the Parkes electorate who dedicate countless hours of their time to helping our communities,” Mr Coulton said.

“Whether it’s responding to emergencies with the State Emergency Service, volunteering with Meals on Wheels, or helping in the canteen at the junior football, our volunteers play an important role in our communities.

“The Volunteer Grants program was an initiative established by the former Coalition government to support local volunteers, ensuring they can continue their valuable work in the community safely and appropriately.”

Mr Coulton said volunteer organisations can apply for grants of between $1,000 and $5,000. []
