A variety of community groups have received funds for activities that benefit their members and the broader community from Shire of Mundaring’s Community Grants Program.

Eighteen groups were awarded General Purpose Quick Grants worth a total value of $8451.99.

Shire President James Martin said 23 applications were received in the second round of the 2021/22 Quick Grants. 

“It is a pleasure to be able to offer a variety of community groups a Quick Grant,” he said.

“Community groups are the quiet achievers in our communities. Volunteers work hard to organise and run projects that benefit our residents, often on a shoe string budget.

“These funds are frequently used to assist with funding for sporting equipment, marketing materials and general items that help them to carry out their activities.”

2021/22 grant recipients 

Twelve community groups received the total amount of funding of $500 including WA Woodturners Association (Mundaring Branch), Parkerville Playgroup, Swan View Community Garden and five sporting clubs.

The Sawyers Valley Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade were awarded $388 for equipment to support their engagement efforts at community events.

The group has purchased a marquee, folding table and chairs to use when engaging in community education and outreach programs to promote bushfire preparedness

The grant, which is offered twice per financial year, awards up to $500 to community groups for the purchase of small equipment, training, promotional material and other small projects that benefit the community.
