Next community funding round imminent
Local community and sporting organisations are encouraged to apply for the City of Armadale’s second round of community funding for the 2017-18 year, opening on 19 March and closing on 30 April.
Grants of up to $2,000 are available for local groups delivering projects which benefit the community.
Riverdale Childcare and Community Association were successful during the first round of funding, receiving financial assistance for their 30th anniversary open day which was held in November last year.
Manager Hilary Rimmer said that as a not for profit organisation, the funding was a great help to make the open day possible. The open day welcomed people from throughout Armadale and Kelmscott and featured activities and entertainment for families.
“We would encourage any community organisation needing assistance for a local project or event to consider the City’s community funding program,” Ms Rimmer said.
Community groups must be incorporated or auspiced by another incorporated organisation to apply. Previous recipients are eligible to apply, provided previous funding monies have been utilised and acquitted.
Mayor Henry Zelones OAM, JP said the City of Armadale is fortunate to have so many community and sporting organisations contributing their services to our community.
“Our community funding grants provide a way for us to support many of the projects and events vital to our community, often delivered by small organisations,” Mayor Zelones said.
To apply, representatives from community organisations must contact a member of the City’s Community Services team to discuss their application prior to submission.
