Community Funding Programs

As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are currently reviewing our Council Policy on Community Funding to ensure that we are able to deliver funding to best accommodate the community’s requirements at this given time. Therefore, there will be no funding programs offered until the review is complete.

It is anticipated to have dates made available for when the funding programs will be open mid to late October 2020.

Should you have any feedback that you would like to provide regarding our Community Funding Programs or the type of assistance that you require as a result of COVID-19 (i.e. operational assistance, delivery of programs etc.) please email to grants@cgg.wa.gov.au and it will be considered as part of the review process.
