Community organisations across the Waroona Shire are being asked to apply for small grants for their projects.

Applications opened on Thursday for the first round of funding this financial year from the Alcoa Waroona Micro Grants Fund.

The fund, a partnership between the Shire of Waroona and the company, is offering grants of up to $2000 for local groups.

The fund aims to help entities to either deliver events, projects, programs or facilities that benefit local communities, or build and strengthen their organisational capacity or sustainability.

Successful projects will need to also align with the council’s 2030 Strategic Community Plan.

Waroona Shire president Mike Walmsley said he was looking forward to seeing creative ideas put forward to benefit the community.

“If your group is in need of financial support to bring an idea to fruition, this is your opportunity,” he said.

“The last funding round was highly competitive, so I encourage anyone thinking about applying for a grant to discuss their application with the Shire to ensure it meets the guidelines.”

The applications for the current round of funding close on February 15.
