The City would like to acknowledge the efforts of the many volunteers and community associations for the contribution they make in supporting our Canning community and helping us achieve our vision of being a welcoming and thriving City.
The City has undertaken a process of reviewing its grant program in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and at this time, given the Government mandated restrictions on gatherings and social distancing requirements many activities that would normally be supported through our grant program are no longer able to go ahead. Consequently the City has made the decision to defer assessment and approval of grants until we are in a position to be confident activities can take place.
Grant applications that have been received but not yet been assessed will be considered as part of the first grant ground in 20/21.
Due to the current state of uncertainty dates are yet to be confirmed.
There is one round offered each financial year closing 26 March 2020.
Incorporated not-for-profit organisations may apply once to this round (irrespective of any other applications to other grant categories). Schools are not eligible to apply for this grant.
Funding is available to purchase equipment which will support the viability of not-for-profit organisations and help deliver local community services.
All purchases must be new, durable (i.e. last over 12 months), accessible to members, be used frequently, and must not be for personal use. If permission is required for use or installation of the equipment, this should be obtained prior to making an application due to the tight timeline for this grant.
The City will match the applicant’s cash contribution up to $5,000 i.e. to receive a grant of $5,000 you must contribute at least $5,000 in cash towards the total costs.
