The remaining two grant tiers on offer through the Shire of Mundaring's Recover Together COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Fund are set to close next month.
Community groups or businesses with a program or initiative that will help them to restart and reconnect following the COVID-19 pandemic are encouraged to apply for a Restart or Reconnect grant before Tuesday 1 June.
Shire President, John Daw, said the Restart Grant (worth up to $500) supports requests for small initiatives and items that will assist groups and businesses in recovery and 'restarting' and the Reconnect Grant (worth between $501 and 2500), supports programs and initiatives that will generate broader community or economic benefits.
"Businesses and not-for-profit community groups who could benefit from a funding boost for training, equipment, website enhancement, printing and promotions and implementing COVID-19 safety measures, should apply for a Restart Grant," he said.
"Examples of funding requests for a Reconnect Grant are insurance, advertising, promotion, equipment, engaging consultants and training."
Over the past nine months, the Shire has awarded $239,576 across 11 Restart, 20 Reconnect, 13 Rebuild and five Resilience Grants.
"These initiatives will help rebuild and ease financial burden, strengthen community relationships and lessen social isolation during these uncertain times," Cr Daw said.
Cr Daw encouraged not-for-profit community groups or local businesses with an idea to apply now.
