Community organisations, groups and clubs from Wangara and throughout the City of Wanneroo are being invited to apply for funding assistance.

Applications for the latest round of grants under the City’s Community Funding Programme for 2019 are now open, according to Mayor Tracey Roberts. She said local organisations or those who have a primary interest within the City of Wanneroo can apply for funding to assist with activities, projects and events, adding:

“This round of funding is to support community development projects and events taking place from July to December 2019.”

The three main funding categories are Community Development Funding, Community Event Funding and Christmas Community Celebration Event Funding.

The Community Development Funding is aimed at activities and projects that help the enrichment and growth of community life throughout the city while funding is also available for community-based events conducted and developed in the city under the Community Event Funding.

The third category relates to events that recognise the city’s commitment to celebrate and support the community.

The funds can also help with event promotional costs, which could involve flyers and banner printing.

A Community Funding Officer is available to help potential applicants with their submissions and to guide them through the entire process from eligibility criteria to shaping the event or project. Applications must be received by the City of Wanneroo no later than 4pm on March 15, 2019.
