The latest round of the 2019-2020 Volunteer Grants is open to local community groups in Pearce, with federal funding available to support local volunteers.

Pearce MP Christian Porter said $66,000 of funding was available in the latest round of the program.

"Volunteers are the backbone of our local communities, and we're proud to support them and the good work they're doing," Mr Porter said.

"Volunteering helps to inspire confidence and develop new skills, but it also delivers social and economic benefits to the wider community.

"My office will be liaising with community leaders across this round of grants to identify and ensure priority volunteer support for our local area."

Grants between $1000 and $5000 are available to help community organisations to support the efforts of Pearce's volunteers.
