Published on Friday, 28 May 2021 at 8:35:00 AM


Community Groups within the Shire of Gnowangerup are now invited to apply for Community Financial Assistance Grants (CFAG) Program. There are three categories of funding available for projects taking place in 2021/22 financial year.

1. Quick Grants - for applications up to $500.00, primarily for volunteer support.
2. Community Grants- for applications from $501.00 - $5,000.00 aimed at supporting community groups with small capital projects, events, projects etc.
3. Special Requests Community Grants - for applications from $5000.00 - $20,000.00 aimed at supporting community groups with large capital projects, events, projects etc. The purpose of the grant is not to fund operating costs.

Comprehensive guidelines, application forms and acquittal statements for each category can be found by clicking on the links above or by contacting the Shire Office on 9827 1007.

Requests for operational funding, works-in-kind or reimbursement for expenses prior to the 2021/22 financial year will no longer be accepted under the guidelines. Furthermore, this is now the only pathway to request Council contribution for partnership funding for any project throughout the year.
Please consider all events, projects or infrastructure your community group is planning for the 2021/22 year carefully, as applications will only be open once per year.

If your community group is interested in applying for assistance under any of the grant categories, please make contact with our Community Development Coordinator, Kirsty Buchanan on 9827 1007 or email to discuss your idea.
