The Merrifield Community Partnerships Program (MCPP) is a unique, financial support initiative for individuals, groups and businesses looking to partner with Merrifield to meet the cultural, recreational, social, and entrepreneurial needs of this fast-growing and vibrant community.
With funding up to $20,000 available across multiple categories, MCPP is just one of the ways we’re working together to make Merrifield the place to be!
Discover the kinds of projects we can make happen together with the Merrifield Community Partnerships Program 2018 with these thought-starters!
Community and Culture: Get creative with ideas for local music programs, community festivals, community public arts projects and cultural events, book clubs, youth activities, playgroups and meet-ups for mums and bubs, or a neighbourhood watch group.
Healthy & Well being: Kick some goals with your ideas for sporting activities, walking groups and health & fitness initiatives and Men’s / Women’s support and activity groups.
Smart & Sustainable: Plant the seed for future growth and prosperity with your ideas for a community garden, workshops, waste and recycling programs, or unlock Merrifield’s entrepreneurial spirit with training & educational programs and business networking groups.
