Latest round of Regional Grants opening soon

Date published: 21/12/2015

Applications will open in the New Year for the latest round of funding through the State Government's Royalties for Regions' Regional Grants Scheme and Community Chest Fund.

Both programs are for community, public and not for profit organisations to improve and develop infrastructure and services to the region.

Regional Development Minister, Terry Redman, announced to day that regional communities would benefit from a 50% increase to both the scheme and the fund, with $15 million available under the Regional Grants Scheme and $5 million under the Community Chest Fund across WA. Each of the nine Regional Development Commissions will receive $1.67 million from the Regional Grants Scheme and $556,000 from the Community Chest Fund. Both rounds of funding will open on Monday 11 January, 2016 and close on 17 March 2016. Guidelines and applications forms will be available from the date the round opens.
