GRANTS & FUNDING


MID YEAR SMALL COMMUNITY GRANTS PROGRAM

**IMPORTANT UPDATE**

Please be advised that this is the last and final Mid-Year Small Community Grants round that the Shire of Gingin will offer (unless otherwise advertised). 

In future all applicants will need to apply to the annual Shire Community Grants Program which opens on the first Monday in February and closes on the third Friday in March annually.  These applications will be assessed in line with the upcoming Annual Budget for that financial year.   

When: Opens Monday, 23 September and closes 4pm, Friday, 18 October 2019.

Eligibility: Not-for-profit organisations, groups and/or clubs. Unincorporated organisations must be supported by an auspicing organisation.

Funds Available: The total amount for the Mid-Year Small Community Grants 19/20 round is $15,000 (GST exclusive).

Financial Partnerships: It is expected that applicants will share the financial costs in the project/event that include applicant (cash) contribution, other grant funding and/or income support. In-kind support can also contribute to sharing the costs.

Projects Completion Date:  Projects with a completion date of 31 May annually or event initiatives with a completion date of 10 June annually.

IMPORTANT - Infrastructure Projects

If your proposed project is for new fixed infrastructure or additions, alterations and/or improvements to existing Shire infrastructure/assets then you will need to seek Shire approval in the first instance. For more information visit the Community Projects for Shire Assets/Land website page to read the ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ fact sheet and if applicable complete the ‘Concept Enquiry’. 

 Note:  The completion and submission of a Concept Enquiry ideally is required a few months prior to the Shire of Community Grants Program round (other applicable grant rounds) at the concept stage of the project to ensure 1) that it is supported by the Shire and 2) that enough time has been allowed to develop the project with the appropriate planning and information to support a grant application.
