Grants of up to $5000 for community not-for-profit organisations are available through the Boronia Revitalisation Board, to purchase new or replacement equipment.

The next round of the Boronia Revitalisation Minor Grants Program was announced by Bayswater MP Jackson Taylor, who also chairs the board, with Applications opening on Monday 17 April and closing on Wednesday 17 May 2023 at 11.59pm.

$50,000 in grants are available from the board for organisations that operate a facility open to community members in Boronia, are an incorporated association, a co-operative, a charity registered with the Australian Charities and not-for-profits commission and have a current Australian Business Number.

“As a priority location in Melbourne’s east, our vision is for Boronia to be the safe, vibrant, connected and inclusive suburb that the community deserves,” Mr Taylor said.

“I’m stoked that the Boronia Suburban Revitalisation Board is delivering projects focused on improving liveability for all residents, as well as increasing local economic activity, to ensure the suburb will thrive.”

Three local projects were also recently completed through funding from the board:

A new parklet, solar lighting, a raised pedestrian crossing and improved access to Boronia Train Station were added to Lupton Way as a part of a renewal project.

The Boronia Laneway and Arcade were upgraded with public art and creative elements to five pedestrian pathways.

500 LED lights were installed throughout Boronia in a bid to address community concerns about safety while offering energy-efficient infrastructure.

The three projects were a $450,000 investment from the Suburban Revitalisation program. Since 2020, $4 million has been spent on 23 Boronia projects.
