Grant Funding

Grant funding is a great way for communities to build their capacity and fund worthy projects.  A range of Federal and State Government, philanthropic and corporate grants are available on the Funding Centre website.

COVID-19 grants program

The Shire’s COVID-19 grants program is currently open to community groups and organisations to apply for a one-off grant up to $5000 towards a community project that will create and deliver innovative solutions to meet the changing needs of the community due to the impact of COVID-19.

The first grant round of $30,000 will be for projects delivered by 30 June 2020.

Applications must illustrate that they will meet the needs of those affected by the pandemic in the most timely, effective and efficient way as well as being transparent and accountable.

Grants Directory

The Department of Local Government has a grants directory which contains programs provided by the West Australian Government as well as private sector organisations.

The Directory’s primary objective is to keep local governments and communities of regional and metropolitan Western Australia informed of a wide range of available funding programs for worthwhile activities, projects and events.
