Local Schools Community Fund

The Local School Community Fund (LSCF) will provide up to $200,000 in grant funding in each Federal electorate in the 2019-20 financial year. Unfortunately this is less than the $11 million in extra funding that schools in the federal electorate of Macnamara would have received if a Labor Government had been elected.

Schools in Macnamara are eligible for a single grant between $1000 - $20,000 for small scale projects.

I have contacted all eligible school principals via post to inform them of their eligibility and to encourage them to apply.
