Local community, volunteer and service-based organisations have until 4pm on Friday 30 August 2019 to apply for a 2019-20 Shire of Augusta Margaret River Community Development Grant of up to $2000.
Requests can be made for projects or initiatives in the categories of community development; youth development; and community inclusion, with funding to be prioritised for applications that enable the Shire to be more a welcoming, inclusive and healthy place.
An Augusta Margaret River Shire spokesperson said that the 2019 grants program has been expanded from previous years.
This means that the Shire is able to support a larger number of community groups and organisations to deliver stronger outcomes for the community.
"The new categories of youth development and community inclusion enables the Shire to target some of its support to focus on areas such as youth support and access and inclusion," they said.
"This year the grant funding cap has been increased from $1000 to $2000, meaning successful applications have the ability to broaden their project scope to benefit more people.
"Community groups and organisations are eligible to apply for funding, and are encouraged to contact the Shire for help or advice on the Shire's application process.
"In the event the proposal doesn't meet Community Development Grant funding criteria the Shire may be able to assist in directing applicants to alternative funding opportunities."
For further information, or to schedule a meeting to discuss your project ideas and application please contact the Shire on 97805255 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
