Community Assistance Grants Scheme 2011/2012: Now Open!
Is your community group looking for financial assistance for an upcoming project?
The City of Mandurah invites local community groups to apply for grants through the Community Association Fund, Round 1: 2011/2012.
Community Association Fund; Round 1
Funding is available for projects that:
• Increase community participation and involvement within City of Mandurah boundaries
• Develop the skills of community associations and volunteer based organisations
The Community Association Funds are contributions to assist incorporated, not-for-profit community groups to deliver projects.
This round there is a total pool of $20,000 available to local groups, with two grant streams:
(a) One-off funding for community projects or events (Grants up to $1000): Associations applying for this grant can only receive funding once per financial year and only for different or new projects.
(b) Recurrent funding – Co-contribution grants (Grants up to $500): Associations are required to fund 50% of the project’s cash contribution. This grant suits associations that provide the same community event or project every year.
CAF applications must be received before 4:30pm on Friday, 23 September 2011
The key aims of the Partnership Fund (Grants over $1000) are to:
1. Increase community access to essential programs and services through the development of partnerships between the City and non-profit community organisations.
2. Provide assistance to non-profit community associations with the capacity to assess community need to develop essential community services or programs, which are consistent with The City of Mandurah’s strategic objectives and programs but not directly operated by the City.
There is currently a total of $34,000 allocated for the 2011/12 financial year. The Partnership Fund can provide recurrent funding for up to three years with supporting documentation such as a Strategic and/or Business Plans.
A meeting with one of the City’s Community Development Officers is a pre-requisite before applying for this funding.
Partnership Fund applications must be received before 4.30pm on Friday 14 October, 2011.
