2019/2020 Community Grant Program closed
Following the advice of the WA Department of Health, Shire of Mundaring is introducing changes to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
We anticipate that there will be some constraints to service delivery as a result of COVID-19.
Given this, the remaining 2019/20 community grant rounds will not go ahead as planned.
These changes will remain in place until further notice.
The Shire's Community Grant Program is organised on a financial year basis and is a competitive process. The grants aim to support the sustainability and independence of community groups. Shire of Mundaring Community Grants Program
Please refer to the Grant Guidelines for further information about your group's eligibility and what the grant will fund. All community groups are encouraged to discuss their ideas and options with the Community Capacity Building Officer, especially those seeking funds for the first time.
In addition to the Community Grants Program, the Shire also administers a Youth Engagement Partnership Fund which provides a maximum of $10,000 funding to community groups delivering initiatives that are aligned to the Shire's Youth Services Model.
