Non-for-profit groups in the Shire of Waroona are being asked to put their hands up for contributions towards small projects.

The latest funding round for the Alcoa Waroona Micro Grants Fund is now open, with community organisations within the area eligible to apply.

Grants of up to $2000 are on offer for events and programs which align with the council’s 2030 strategic community plan.

The last round of funding supported six projects by the Waroona Lions Club, Waroona Agricultural Society, Preston Beach Golf Club, St Joseph’s School, Waroona Demons sporting club and Croquetwest.

Waroona Shire president Mike Walmsley said the coming funding round would be highly competitive because of the funding support already provided through the AWMGF and the Alcoa Waroona Sustainability Fund.

Both funds are a partnership between the Shire and Alcoa of Australia.

“This is an ideal opportunity to help top up funding for worthwhile projects that need a little additional support,” he said.

“It is expected that organisations will already have some contributing funding in place.”

Applications are open until August 15, with those looking at applying asked to discuss their proposal with the Shire of Waroona’s community development team before making an application.
